Information

Yumbarra Conservation Park is named after the one of the rock holes that protrudes from the earth's surface. When the rock holes fill with water after rain they provide an important water source for local wildlife, making the park ideal for birdwatching. It is accessible only by 4WD and a permit is required for camping at designated locations. Bookings and permits must be obtained before visiting the park as there are no services along the track.

In the north east­ern cor­ner of the park along Goog’s Track, lies Goog’s Lake, a pop­u­lar tourist des­ti­na­tion with clear­ly marked scenic camp.ing grounds, mon­u­ments to Goog and Dinger Den­ton (who forged Goog’s Track) and a num­ber of easy walk­ing tracks.

The park has large areas of rolling sand dunes and is an important conservation area for some of our rare and vanishing native species, including malleefowl and sandhill dunnarts. Kangaroos, wombats and dingoes all inhabit the park.

There are a number of walking trails which follow Googs Track to Googs Lake, Mount Finke and the monuments to Goog and Dinger Denton.

Dogs are not permitted.
