Witjira National Park is a protected area in the Australian state of South Australia about 987 kilometres (613 miles) north of the state capital of Adelaide.
The national park was proclaimed on 21 November 1985 to "protect Australia’s largest array of arterial springs: the nationally significant Dalhousie Mound Springs complex". In 2007, it became the first protected area in South Australia to have formal joint management arrangements between its traditional owners and the Government of South Australia.
As of 2018, it covered an area of 7,726.73 square kilometres (2,983.31 sq mi).
The extent of land occupied by the national park was gazetted as a locality in April 2013 under the name 'Witjira'.
The historic Dalhousie Homestead Ruins, from the former Dalhousie Station, lie within the national park and are listed on the South Australian Heritage Register.
The national park is classified as an IUCN Category VI protected area. It was listed on the now-defunct Register of the National Estate during or after 1998.
