Mamungari Conservation Park

National Park - South Australia


Mamungari Conservation Park is a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve containing arid zone wilderness. The park, which features red sand dunes covered with desert karrajong, acacias, desert gums and salt lakes, is of cultural significance to the Maralinga Tjarutja Peoples, who are its traditional owners.

While discovering the park by foot, look out for the wildlife that inhabit the area's harsh conditions, including the princess parrots, scarlet-chested parrots and the Australian bustards.

Several permits are required to travel through this area. Due to the park's remoteness, visitors must be well-equipped and experienced in outback 4WD travel.
