Enjoy the peace­ful sur­round­ings of the Ngarkat Con­ser­va­tion Park and take in the views over the park’s 270,000 hectares of veg­e­tat­ed sand dunes, mallee and heath. The park abounds in wildlife. Look out for west­ern grey kan­ga­roos, emus and more than 120 species of birds. You may spot a rare malleefowl walk­ing slow­ly amongst the trees.

A num­ber of walk­ing trails give you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to see the wildlife and gain a bet­ter appre­ci­a­tion of the vast mallee land­scape. Enjoy the mag­nif­i­cent views from Tyms Look­out along a 2 – 3 hour hike. Ear­ly attempts to farm this coun­try failed as seen by the ruins of ear­ly Euro­pean pio­neer­ing set­tle­ments at Box Flat.

Please note that camp­ing fees are chang­ing in this park from Fri­day 1 July 2022.
