Over 210 species have been identified in our forests.
Cullendore High Country is a birdwatcher’s paradise.
The extensive forests provide habitat for a wide variety of birdlife. The location of these forests means that birds from inland areas co-exist with species found in the temperate and subtropical coastal forests. This provides a treasure trove of birdlife in the one area. Birdwatchers may encounter species as diverse as Budgerigars to the Regent Bowerbird.
Cullendore High Country is located in the heart of a key biodiversity and conservation area that contains 29 threatened and endangered species.
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).

Cullendore High Country is traversed by a number of creeks and streams that converge at the Overflow Campsite.
All of the streams on Cullendore High Country rise either in our campgrounds or the neighbouring national park.
It is a favourite picnic spot for our campers.
There are many hectares to explore in our campgrounds along with kilometres of walking trails through the neighbouring Maryland National Park.
This gives bushwalkers a wide variety of experiences. Enjoy the beautiful vistas of the Great Dividing Range, the quiet pools along our creeks or the magnificent old growth brushbox forests of the Park. We have a private entry into Maryland National Park, giving walkers access to the quiet trails that traverse the temperate forests of the Park.
We have over 13kms of driving trails that take you to special areas of our campgrounds.
These trails are not designed as extreme four wheel drive tracks. If this is what you are after these can be found in extreme driving parks closer to Tenterfield. Our trails are designed to take visitors on sedate and scenic tours. They can be used to visit our creeks, forests, waterholes and mountain lookouts found throughout the campgrounds. Picnic areas have been set-up along these trails for all to enjoy. This allows visitors to stop in the more remote sections of the campground and explore the many aspects of Cullendore High Country. This includes a 7 kilometre drive down to the Maryland River.
