Site description
The Gillingarra IBA supports at least 1% of the breeding population of Carnaby's Black-Cockatoo. The IBA boundaries are defined by known areas of suitable nesting habitat and associated feeding habitat. The IBA is comprised of isolated Marri paddock trees providing nesting sites and a large area of intact proteaceous heath providing food sources for nesting birds. Pasture, crops, non-native plants and weed populations are not included in the IBA. The area has a Mediterranean climate.

Key biodiversity
Additional bird surveys may show that other significant species are present in the IBA.
