Ngarkat group of Conservation Parks cover a total of 270,152 hectares. They include the original Ngarkat and adjoining parks of Mount Rescue, Mount Shaugh and Scorpion Springs.

This park features a mixture of mallee and heathlands covering a system of remnant coastal dunes. The park has a network of trails ranging from ten minute walks to five hour hikes. It is also home to an array of wildlife including echidnas, pygmy-possums, dunnarts, kangaroos, lizards and birds. 

Camping permits are available from the Tatiara District Council and various self-registration points around the Park.

Take one of the clearly marked 4wd tracks to experience the region's vast terrain. Please drive responsibly and respect the environment so that future generations can enjoy everything it has to offer. Most tracks are unsuitable for conventional vehicles.

The one-way section of the Border Track closes each year during the fire danger period - mid-November to early April.

Please check with the Tatiara District Council on 08 8752 1044 for 4WD access and conditions.
