    This was an excellent way to gain some knowledge of the wildlife in the area. Easily can spend 4-5 hours, just sit and wait for the animals to move around you. Good things happen to those who wait!!

    Beautiful park that explains the richness of the desert. Be careful, the sun hits hard and temperatures can be very high! If you have time, this is an excellent place to spend time

    Do the night tour, it's well worth it just to see the Mala and Bilby!
