Starting from the car park at the intersection of Snozwells Road and the Southern Boundary Track, Ngarkat Conservation Park, this walk takes you on a circuit past Tyms Lookout via the Tyms Lookout Hike. Known for its peaceful surroundings, Ngarkat Conservation Park protects important mallee and heath communities that extend across 270,000 hectares of vegetated sand dunes, making it an ideal destination for outback adventurers with a variety of bushwalking, camping and off-road driving experiences. The park is home to a diverse range of native wildlife, including western grey kangaroos, echidnas, emus, pygmy-possums, dunnarts and over 120 species of birds, with an abundance of wildflowers and orchids, especially in spring. Located in the southwest corner of the park, this hike winds through mallee bush and climbs up to the Tyms Lookout, providing spectacular views over the vast mallee landscape and surrounding farmland. This loop consists of sandy walking trails, with some short steep hills and uneven natural surfaces, suitable for average fitness levels. Camping is available nearby at Bucks Camp, which has several campsites, caravan sites, picnic tables and campfire rings. 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.
