Nombinnie Nature Reserve

Overview

Nombinnie Nature Reserve was created in December 1988. It covers an area of 70000ha. For detailed park and fire management documents, visit the OEH website.

Along with Yathong and Round Hill Nature Reserves, Nombinnie forms part of one of the largest contiguous blocks of Mallee in western NSW. The majority of the reserve is located on the extensive dune fields of the Darling depression. Some areas of riverine plains are present near Willandra Creek.

Apart from the mallee, the vegetation is made up of stands of white cypress pine woodlands, woodlands of bimble box and red box, black box in depressions, lignum, belah woodlands in association with western rosewood, wilga, leafless cherry and warrior bush.

A variety of endangered fauna including malleefowl, red lored whistler, southern scrub robin and pink cockatoo are present in the reserve. Over 90 species of birds are known from the area.

Principal management objectives include the maintenance of habitat diversity, encouragement of regeneration and protection of rare plant and animal species. Research and educational activities are encouraged where compatible with nature conservation objectives.

These maps give a basic overview of park attractions and facilities, and may not be detailed enough for some activities. We recommend that you buy a topographic map before you go exploring.
