Mulbura Park Reserve consists of 19ha of remnant low She-oak (Allocasuarina verticillata) woodland and Mallee (Eucalyptus socialis) within central Yorke Peninsula. The Reserve recorded the highest level of biodiversity in the region during the quadrant sampling for the State Biological Survey of Yorke Peninsula in 1994. It conserves an extremely valuable vegetation type of which only an estimated 2% remains within the Curramulka region.

Over 136 indigenous species have been identified within the woodland of which; 1 species is endangered, 1 is vulnerable, and 10 are rare for the Yorke Peninsula region. The reserve also provides suitable habitat for 10 bird species of Regional Conservation Significance. Of these species 5 have been observed.

Mulbura Park was a gift from Mr Digby Germein in 1975 and has been under National Trust management since 1979.The best time to visit Mulbura Park Reserve is during spring while the wildflowers are in full bloom. A short walking trail can be followed through the reserve, which loops back to the entrance.
