Waterhole near Round Tank Picnic Area and goat trap. Water attracts wild goats (non-native) who roam the outback in large numbers and cause major damage to the vegetation.

All the same, feral goats are forging a reputation as a valuable commodity says the journal Australian Geographic, for their resilience and adaptability in drought-ravaged parts. The meat is exported and has a large international market, most of it going to Taiwan and the USA. Goat meat is not commonly seen on our shelves.
