wild dog hill walk'n'talk

Join our rangers in the Whyalla Conservation Park for a short climb to the top of Wild Dog Hill.

Enjoy the breathtaking views across over the semi-arid plains of western myall trees and bluebush. Spot a Wedge-tailed Eagle over head or a euro down below feeding on the native vegetation.

This is brought to you by the National Parks and Wildlife Service SA and their Park of the Month initiative which is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of our special natural places and to find new ways to enjoy them.

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. Learn more about the park during this great opportunity with a National Park's Ranger.
