Karara Rangeland Park Tour and Melangata Station Stay in wild flower season

Further information is coming soon

WHY VISIT THIS AREA? 

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) has taken over the responsibility to care for this area of land once used for Pastoral Leases. The Stations that ran these pastoral leases became unsustainable and degraded. So now you can can enjoy remote camping in a more pristine, natural environment as the DBCA works hard to revegetate and clean up this area. We now have a Ranger in residence in the Park.
