Brindingabba National Park
Brindingabba National Park was created in February 2022. It covers an area of 33904ha. View the detailed park and fire management documents.
On the New South Wales–Queensland border, Brindingabba National Park conserves part of the Cuttaburra Basin.
The park is on Budjiti and Gurnu Baakandjii Country, around 175km north-west of Bourke and 75km south-east of Hungerford. Arrive by the scenic Hungerford-Bourke Road which is part of the Dowling Track outback driving route through channel country.
The landscape is predominantly red clay desert, stony mulga rises, Mitchell grass grasslands and mulga woodland. Echidnas, red kangaroos and woodland birds like weebills, hooded robins and mistletoe birds call these areas home. After heavy rain, Yantabulla Swamp, part of Lake Wombah and the Paroo and Warrego floodplains transform into important wetland habitat. This attracts thousands of waterbirds like freckled ducks, pink-eared ducks, grey teals and night herons that migrate to the park.
The park safeguards at least 12 endangered and 31 vulnerable animal species and protects important ecosystems in the Murray-Darling's northern basin.
Brindingabba National Park links Comeroo, Yantabulla and Naree areas. Together, they make up 100,000ha of connected habitat under private lands conservation agreements with the Biodiversity Conservation Trust.
Brindingabba National Park is also rich in Aboriginal artefacts and items of significance. The area’s pastoral history is visible in 19th century landmarks that include Brindingabba Station and Brindingabba Homestead.
