The dense mallee scrub in the northern part of the park provides shelter to a range of wildlife, including kangaroos, echidnas, hairy-nosed wombats, fat-tailed dunnarts and the rare malleefowl. In contrast, the southern section features open mallee as the area was once largely used for wheat farming.
The park provides good opportunities for bird watching. Keep a look out for black-eared miners, honeyeaters and many other colourful mallee birds. During spring the park blossoms, displaying a variety of colourful mallee plants. The park’s camping ground is accessible to conventional vehicles, however, some sections of the boundary road are only accessible by 4WD.
Experience a night out in the bush, soak up a sunset over the native bushland and red sandy soils within this park. The Pooginook campground and some sections of the boundary road are only accessible by 4WD vehicles. The campground is suitable for tents and off-road camper trailers only.
