The plants and animals here have had little disturbance in the last 40 years, making it an important reminder of vegetation native to the ranges and hills of central west NSW. Conimbla is particularly known for its diverse array of orchids, including the only known population of the beautiful and unusual midge orchid. In spring, the ground is covered with masses of beautiful wildflowers. Conimbla is also an important refuge for many birds, as it is the largest remnant of native vegetation in the local area and has a diversity of foliage, from open forest to heathland.
