Whyalla Conservation Park

National Parks and Reserves

Rising suddenly from the surrounding plains just to the north of Whyalla, Wild Dog Hill is an outstanding topographical feature of the Whyalla Conservation Park. Its rugged features and imposing profile make it a popular picnic location for local residents and visitors.

Red and Grey Kangaroos are found in the park, and Euros can sometimes be seen on the slopes of Wild Dog Hill at sunset. Smaller, inconspicuous mammals are also present; the Common Dunnart is a carnivorous mouse sized marsupial which eats grasshoppers and small lizards. This park is great for bird watching with over 80 species of birds observed.

The park is open 30 minutes before sunrise until 30 minutes after sunset, seven days a week.
