Yum­bar­ra Con­ser­va­tion Park is named after the Yum­bar­ra rock hole, one of many deep depres­sions weath­ered into the rocky out­crops that pro­trude from the land­scape. After rain, these rock holes fill with water and pro­vide an impor­tant water source for local wildlife. 

The park has vast areas of rolling sand dunes and is an impor­tant con­ser­va­tion area for a num­ber of rare and van­ish­ing native species, includ­ing malleefowl and sand hill dun­narts. Kan­ga­roos, south­ern hairy-nosed wom­bats and din­goes also inhab­it the park. With rock holes cre­at­ing wildlife con­gre­ga­tion points and with uncrowd­ed foliage, the park is an ide­al bird­watch­ing area.

In the north east­ern cor­ner of the park along Goog’s Track, lies Goog’s Lake, a pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tion with clear­ly marked scenic camp­ing grounds, mon­u­ments to Goog and Dinger Den­ton (who forged Goog’s Track) and a num­ber of easy walk­ing tracks.
