Coonalpyn  South Australia

The small Dukes Highway town of Coonalpyn is at the centre of a region once known as the Ninety Mile Desert, which sustainable farming practices and management have long since converted into productive land.

The Memorial Park is just the place for travellers to rest up and recharge the batteries and, if you have a pet in tow, follow the Tunnel Vision mural to a special exercise area.

Coonalpyn is also an ideal base for exploratory forays into the nearby Mt Boothby and Carcuma Mallee conservation parks where emus, mallee fowl, grey kangaroos and echidna browse in their natural habitat.

Just a few kilometres east from Carcuma lies the large, 270,150ha Ngarkat Conservation Park, a popular weekend bolt-hole for dedicated 4WD enthusiasts.

One of the largest mallee parks in the state, Ngarkat is a haven for echidnas, western grey kangaroos, dragon lizards, skinks, snakes and such nocturnals as pygmy possums and marsupial and hopping mice.

The bird life includes the rare Mallee fowl, the rufous-crowned emu-wren, western whipbird and red-lored whistler.

Coonalpyn, which has a population of about 275, is 180km south-east of Adelaide.
