Karara Rangeland Park

Karara Rangeland Park refers to the group of six former pastoral leases east of Perenjori – Warriedar, Burnerbinmah, Thundelarra, Lochada, Karara and Kadji Kadji – that were purchased through State and Federal funding for conservation. Covering an area of 560,000 hectares, the park is unallocated Crown land managed by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) for conservation, heritage protection and recreation. Initially the department focused on controlling feral animals, wild dogs and weeds but works to prepare and promote the park for recreation and tourism are now underway.
