Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve / Wurre
One of Central Australia’s iconic images, Rainbow Valley Conservation Reserve is a unique region, that despite the harsh dry environment, have plants that are adapted to the region’s arid conditions.

Whilst the region is dominated by spinifex, that include the softer variety, there are a variety of other plants, especially seen at their best after rain or in spring.

Parakeelya Calandrinia balonensis, known locally as Parrikilya or Parakeelya.

This is a succulent plant, native to Central Australia. The local Aborigines traditionally have eaten the leaves raw or steamed. The roots were also steamed, whilst the seeds are ground to a paste and eaten. The species of Calandrinia balonensis occur in New South Wales, Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.
