Ngarkat Conservation Park

Ngarkat Conservation Park, named after a tribe of Aboriginals who used to inhabit the area, is one of the largest mallee parks in the state. The park covers a total of 270,152 hectares. Visitors will see vast mosaics of mallee woodlands and heathlands covering a system of remnant coastal dunes.

Camp sites are clearly marked with designated tracks into them. Bucks Camp is a short drive (4WD) from the south-eastern entry to the park, and provides picnic tables and a nearby walking trail. Rabbit Island Soak is a little further also via a 4WD track.
