Mount Boothby, after which the Mount Boothby Conservation Park is named, is 129 metres high and is the highest outcrop of granite overlain with limestone within the park.
The limestone and sandy ridges are covered in mallee with a heath understorey. The vegetation consists of dwarf oaks, tea trees, yaccas and desert banksias, all of which grow in the sand flats. The park produces beautiful wild orchids in the spring. Mallee fowl breed here, and western grey kangaroo and echidnas are common.
The nearby Boothby Rocks Council reserve is a popular picnic and camping area, it is commonly known as Boothby Rocks.
