Brindabella National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
North-west of the NSW-ACT border is the 12,050 hectare Brindabella National Park. It is the northern-most park in the Australian Alps. The area is larger still with the Cotter Catchment in the ACT and the Kosciuszko National Park to the immediate south and west.

With flora and fauna unique to this area, it is a significant corridor for the movement of native animals. The park supports a forest of red stringybark and scribbly gum, the more sheltered slopes have forests of brown barrel with ribbon gum. Sub-alpine snow gum and mountain gum forests are found growing on the more elevated sites. Uncommon River Oaks fringe cold air drainage areas adjacent to water courses and Alpine ash on sheltered southern slopes.

The park provides protection for the conservation of many species of flora and fauna. This includes vulnerable species such as the corroboree frog, powerful owl, common bent wing bat, yellow bellied glider and the koala. Other rare or uncommon species including the peregrine falcon and the alpine tea tree, along with 58 sub-alpine plants are found here at the northern limit of their distribution.

Recreational opportunities include bushwalking, mountain biking, four wheel driving, orienteering, bird watching and those interested in the flora and fauna of the region.
