Peebinga Conservation Park
Peebinga Conservation Park is a 34 km2 nature reserve lying 40 km north of the town of Pinnaroo in the Murray Mallee region of south-eastern South Australia, about 240 km east of Adelaide and 10 km west of the Victorian border.
The park contains much land that was previously cleared for agriculture. It is characterised by remnants of mallee woodland on low, stabilised dunes. with regenerating open shrubland and grassland on sand plains.
Flora and fauna
The reserve has been identified by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area (IBA) because it supports a relatively large population of Malleefowl. It previously had a population of the Eastern Mallee subspecies of the Western Whipbird (Psophodes nigrogularis leucogaster), which is now locally extinct. Purple-gaped Honeyeaters are present.
