Check the lat­est Desert Parks Bul­letin before vis­it­ing this park.

On the west­ern side of Mabel Creek Sta­tion, about 100km from Coober Pedy, lies Tal­laringa Con­ser­va­tion Park. This vast wilder­ness of veg­e­tat­ed dunes and gib­ber ris­es is home to an incred­i­ble array of wildlife species unique­ly adapt­ed to their arid environment.

This park is par­tic­u­lar­ly impres­sive in the months fol­low­ing rain that pro­duces an abun­dance of bird-attract­ing flow­er­ing annu­al plants. There are at least sev­en species of mul­ga found co-exist­ing in the park, which is rare.
