Munmorah State Conservation Area, NSW, Australia

Here a few photos taken at Munmorah SCA. This park is located about 50 km south-west of Newcastle, NSW. It is a coastal park that, despite its proximity to a power station, offers a lot for nature lovers, with various types of habitat, including a lake (Lake Munmorah), beaches, rugged cliffs and coastal rockfaces and heath, plus hilly country with creeks flowing through it. In line with the diversity of the landscape, the fauna at Munmorah SCA is also diverse. Amongst other species (see below) we have found there, e.g., coastal banksia. Note that some photos presented on this website are available FOR SALE.
