West MacDonnell National Park

Black-footed rock wallabies are one of many mammals that have been severely affected by European settlement and its foreign pests. Luckily, this species still resides in West MacDonnell National Park, near Ormiston Gorge and Simpsons Gap. Red kangaroos, goannas and euros are all common, and the park has more that 160 bird species including spinifex pigeons, painted finches, western bowerbirds and dusky grasswrens. Try Simpsons Gap for the latter.
