Parndana Conservation Park is a nature reserve on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. It was dedicated in 1968 for the protection of remnant native vegetation.[1]

Description[edit]

The park has an area of 580 ha and lies some 7 km north-east of the town of Parndana in the central part of the island, about 30 km west of Kingscote.[1]

Flora and fauna[edit]

Most of the area of the park carries low open forest and shrubland featuring Eucalyptus baxteri and E. cosmophylla over Allocasuarina muelleriana, Banksia marginata, B. ornata, Xanthorrhoea tateana, Leptospermum myrsinoides and Hakea sp. Some areas along drainage lines have an open forest or woodland of E. cladocalyx over Acacia paradoxa. The park provides feeding and nesting habitat for Glossy Black Cockatoos.[1]
