Here a few photos taken at Pilliga NP. Pilliga NP is a National Park split into two parts, both of which form part of what used to be known as the "Pilliga scrub", an area between Narrabri, Coonabarabran, Gunnedah, Pilliga and Wee Waa in inland NSW that contains the largest contiguous piece of bushland left in NSW outside the Great Dividing Range. Apart from other habitats, Pilliga NP features the so-called "gilgais", i.e. shallow natural depressions with (semi-)permanent waterholes forming ephemeral wetlands that are not part of a creek system. Note that some photos presented on this website are available FOR SALE.

At about 50x200 m, "Old Boo" - seen here on a rainy day after a hot and dry summer - is the biggest "gilgai" (waterhole; ephemeral wetland) in Pilliga NP
Old Coghill Waterhole, another attraction in Pilliga NP, may not be a classical "gilgai", but a generic waterhole associated with Coghill Creek - here seen at the end of extreme drought, in December 2019
