Site summary
This large mallee reserve supports populations of three globally threatened species, Malleefowl, Black-eared Miner and Mallee Emu-wren, the near threatened Red-lored Whistler, and two species restricted to the mallee biome, Regent Parrot and Purple-gaped Honeyeater. It also contains ephemeral wetlands, which sometimes support significant numbers of waterbirds.

Thanks to Tim Dolby for drafting the nomination.
