Penam­bol Con­ser­va­tion Park con­serves an impor­tant area of rem­nant veg­e­ta­tion and con­tains sev­er­al inter­est­ing geo­log­i­cal fea­tures, includ­ing the Car­o­line Sink­hole. Exca­va­tions in the sink­holes have revealed evi­dence of the orig­i­nal inhab­i­tants, Boandik Peo­ples, who were like­ly to have used the area for shelter.

There are also sev­er­al edu­ca­tion­al walk­ing trails that pro­vide an insight into the ani­mals that live in the park. Fol­low the Wom­bat Walk which pass­es bur­rows that are home to the com­mon wom­bat. The But­ter­fly Walk pro­vides the oppor­tu­ni­ty to see and learn about some of the local but­ter­flies such as the splen­did ochre but­ter­fly and orange species butterfly.

An evening walk offers the best chance of sight­ing wombats.
