Karte Conservation Park Hike
1.7 km

30 min to 45 min

Starting from the Karte Campground off Colwill Road, Karte, this walk takes you on a circuit in Karte Con­ser­va­tion Park, exploring the northeastern parts of the reserve. Karte Con­ser­va­tion Park protects a vast expanse of wilderness comprising of thick mallee scrub cov­er­ing tall sand dunes that rise up to 40 metres, with agricultural plains surrounding the park. Dur­ing the ear­ly 20th cen­tu­ry, much of the sur­round­ing land was cleared, except for areas that were unsuit­able for agriculture. This short but challenging walk winds through the park, offering spec­tac­u­lar views over the surrounding area, with interpretive signs along the trail detailing the importance of the park's remaining vegetation, which provides a habitat for over 40 bird species, including the endangered malleefowl. Along the way, walkers may encounter some of the park's residents, such as western grey kangaroos, echidnas or fat-tailed dunnarts. The walk begins from the Karte Campground, which is suitable for tents, car­a­vans, camper vans and camper trailers and has toi­lets, pic­nic tables and fire pits. This loop consists of narrow walking trails, with uneven natural surfaces and short steep hills, suitable for average fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
