‘Wombat’ protects critically endangered Shale Sandstone Transition Forest and a vital habitat link

The 4.8 hectare property ‘Wombat’ was donated by a corporate donor in early 2018 and forms a key link between Blue Mountains National Park and Mulgoa Nature Reserve. These east-west links are critical to the annual migration of Scarlet, Flame Robin and Rose Robins, which migrate from the Blue Mountains to the fertile Cumberland Plain each winter.

The site includes “Critically Endangered” Shale-Sandstone Transition Forest, the endangered Dural Land Snail (Pommerhelix duralensis) the largest known population of the regionally rare wattle Acacia prominens, a population of Common Wombat and a small population of Long-nosed Bandicoots.
