Timmallallie National Park, NSW, Australia

Here a few photos taken at Timmallallie NP. Timmallallie NP is part of what used to be known as the "Pilliga scrub", an area between Narrabri, Coonabarabran, Gunnedah, Pilliga and Wee Waa that contains the largest contiguous piece of bushland left in NSW outside the Great Dividing Range. Based on its hot and dry inland climate, it features various types of vegetation, including eucalypts, mulga and other small trees and shrubs (e.g. various species of wattles). The dominant type of bird habitats are sclerophyll woodland and scrub. The presence of Casuarina trees ("She-oaks") makes the area a home of the Glossy Black-Cockatoo. This park is notably different from the nearby Warrumbungle NP. Note that some photos presented on this website are available FOR SALE.
