Curracabundi National Park is west of Gloucester. Established in June 2006, it covers 10,784 hectares.
The park's landscapes feature rocky outcrops and vast areas of undisturbed old growth woodlands. Its clear creeks feed the Barnard River, maintaining its water quality.
More than 400 species of trees, shrubs, ferns, herbs and grasses provide habitat for many other threatened wildlife including the Sooty Owl, the Yellow-bellied Glider, Spotted-tailed Quolls, the Hastings River Mouse and even Koalas.
The creeks are home to platypus, and at night wombats are a common sight. It is also a haven for the endangered Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby.
There is currently no road access to Curracabundi National Park, which is set aside for the conservation of its unique diversity of plants and animals.
