Pooginook Conservation Park
Pooginook is located on the north side of the Morgan Renmark road approx 20 kms west of Overland Corner. The park is sign posted at the entrance and has no internal roads. The park boundary is accessible to conventional vehicles. The dense Mallee cover on the northern part of the park contrasts to the more open Mallee in the southern section where the land is re-establishing from wheat farming. Vegetation is dominated by Red Ridge-fruited and White Mallees with scattered Sugar Wood and Bitter Quandongs over Porcupine Grass rings. This habitat provides shelter for a range of wildlife including kangaroos, echidnas, Hairy-nosed Wombats, Fat-tailed Dunnarts and Malleefowl. Bird life includes Black-eared Mynahs and Honeyeaters.
