The forests of Cullendore High Country and the neighbouring National Park are home to many of these species.
This includes one of the highest concentrations
of the Spotted-tailed Quoll in Australia.
Key species found in our forests include Koalas, Brushed-tailed Phascogales, Sugar Gliders, Squirrel Gliders, Yellow-footed Antechinus, Long-nosed Bandicoots, Echidnas, Fawn-footed Melomys, Brush-tailed Possums, Ring-tailed Possums and five species of macropods (Red-necked Wallaby, Whip-tailed Wallaby, Wallaroo, Eastern Grey Kangaroo and Rufous Bettong). The wide variety of habitats of the Cullendore High Country include wet sclerophyll forests, open grassland, open woodland and riparian areas along our creeks and the Maryland River. This provides a perfect habitat to support our richness of fauna.
