Help guide the development of the first management plan for the Simpson Desert Conversation Park and Regional Reserve.

What is being decided?

A park management plan is being developed for the Simpson Desert Conservation Park and Regional Reserve, which will set the vision for the area and outline a set of directions to achieve the vision.

The Simpson Desert is the world’s largest sand dune desert, with the world’s longest parallel dunes. South Australia’s Simpson Desert Conservation Park and Simpson Desert Regional Reserve sit just within the SA border, abutting southern Queensland and the Northern Territory. This is the country of the Wangkangurru Yarluyandi people and a destination for travellers from near and far.

A discussion paper (PDF 1.9 MB) has been prepared outlining some of the key management issues for the park.

Responses to this discussion paper will help shape the park management plan, which is set to be adopted next year.

How will your input be used?

Feedback on the discussion paper will be taken into consideration for inclusion in the draft management plan, which will be released early next year.
