The park abounds in wildlife and the Pertendi Walking Trail commencing near the old shepherds hut provides an ideal way to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the Ngarkat Conservation Park as well as take in the views over the park's 270,000 hectares of vegetated sand dunes, mallee and heath. This is an area that has been burned to the ground on average, once every 20 years for the last ten thousand years.
