Aboriginal connections

Wombeyan Karst Conservation Reserve is located within the traditional lands of the Gundungurra People, with the word Wombeyan coming from local language meaning 'Wombat' or 'home of the Wombat'. It's believed that Wombeyan Caves were part of an Aboriginal travel route, with the caves providing reliable shelter. The Dreamtime story of Gurangatch relates to the forming of Wombeyan and Jenolan caves. They are said to have been formed during a contest between 2 mythical beings, Gurangatch and Mirragang. Gurangatch was part fish and part reptile, and Mirragan was a legendary tiger cat.

Life in the air

Wombeyan Karst Conservation Reserve plays a special role in the conservation of some of Australia's precious native flora and fauna. The moist forest that surrounds the park's creeks is home to superb lyrebirds, eastern whipbirds and flycatchers – look for lyrebird scratches on the forest floor. Around the park's rocky outcrops, see if you can spy birds of prey, including brown goshawks and wedge tailed eagles. You'll have to look particularly carefully to see a tawny frogmouth. Their camouflage is excellent – they stay very still and upright, and you might mistake them as part of the branch they're perched on.
