Tallaringa Conservation Park

Tallaringa Conservation Park is located on the fringe of the Great Victoria Desert and is a vast wilderness of vegetated dunes and gibber rises. The park supports a variety of important wildlife species that have adapted to live in this dry arid environment.

Tallaringa Conservation Park is located 615km north west of Port Augusta. Access is via Stuart Highway, Coober Pedy or Mabel Creek Station.
