As well as protecting some of the Territory's pioneering
history, the Owen Springs Reserve is a conservation park, providing refuge to a
range of flora and fauna.
During spring or when conditions are right., Owen Springs Reserves comes
alive with wildflowers. Especially after rain the dirt road are lined with
wildflowers, sometimes stretching into the distance.
Whilst many plants appear to flower at the same time each year, many of the
desert wildflowers have adapted to flowering after periods of rain.
