Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
-Franklin D. Roosevelt
Cullendore High Country is located on the NSW/QLD border. It is in the Northern New England Tablelands, at the northern end of the Tenterfield Shire.
The property is elevated granite terrain, between 700m and 900m and receives an annual average rainfall between 800mm and 1100mm. Runoff drains east and south through Cullendore Creek, Reedy Creek and Chapman’s Swamp Creek into Maryland River, which is in turn a tributary of the Clarence River.
Cullendore High Country includes approximately 800ha of forest corridors that link the neighbouring Maryland National Park to areas of forest to our east. These corridors follow Maryland River along its riparian zone, as well as upland corridors in the higher wetter areas of the property. This forest reflects its position in a transition zone between subtropical habitats in the east and temperate habitats in the south. These forest corridors have a very high biological diversity and are home to many species.
Our campground is designed to give visitors the space needed to be able to immerse themselves in the beauty and rhythms of nature. Our aim is to make our campground an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life where visitors can feel at one with our natural environment.
