Ilparpa Valley
Situated 12km south of town, the Claypans supports a significant diversity of plants, animals, landforms and cultural heritage. The rare rainfalls filling the 12 ephemeral clay pans with water bring life to aquatic life like the shield shrimp.

Used by locals and visitors for a number of activities, it has resulted in significant negative impacts on the area’s natural value.
Clearing the Buffel Grass will prevent trees from burning in case of uncontrolled fire and also result in the growth of native plants whose seed banks are still in the ground.
