130 km south of Dirranbandi on the QLD-NSW border is the
isolated and difficult to get to Culgoa Floodplains National Park. An
extensive area of 22,430 ha of flood prone flats off the
Culgoa River. The area supports a large array of native
wildlife and birdlife. The vegetation in this area is mostly
gidgee with brigalows and mulga scrub.
The park receives
little in the way of visitors due to its isolation and some
say the entire park is under threat due to water allocation
measures upstream which will affect the natural water flows
into the park and the floodplains.
Access to the park is
only during the dry season and by 4WD. No facilities of any
kind exist within the park please take all supplies. No
information is available on camping in the park.
