Wildlife and Flora

The Corner Country is home to unique land systems with their own flora and fauna types.  Some are found only in this north western part of New South Wales.
  Many of the plant species are sensitive to rainfall and have evolved especially to cope with the drier seasons that are often experienced across the area, as well as the variations in soil types from rugged ranges to the soft red sands found commonly in the far north western parts.
 
 Broken Hill Bio-region alone has 195 species of birds, 58 species of reptiles, 5 species of amphibians and 37 species of mammals.
 
In the area of Mutawinji National Park are endangered colonies of yellow-footed rock wallabies, whilst in Sturt National Park an endangered species rehabilitation project is returning bilbies and bandicoots to a vermin proof enclosure.
 
Native animals and the many bird species can be seen in the national parks but also on the station stay properties across the area.
