Mamungari Conservation Park

Mamungari (previously The Unnamed) Conservation Park is an 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 people.

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.

The park is managed in partnership with the traditional owners and DEWNR.

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.
