Points of interest

Gundabooka is of great significance for the Ngemba and Paakantji people. A rich Aboriginal heritage arises from the landscape’s place in creation and ceremony.

Spectacular rock art

Diverse and varied vegetation including tall and shady river red gums, woodland plains of bimble box, western red box and mulga. Ironwood, belah and white cypress pine and grey mallee too.

Abundance of Wildlife

Fauna surveys have revealed 137 species of birds, 19 reptiles and amphibians and 14 mammals. The park provides a safe haven for eight threatened bird species including the painted honeyeaters, brown treecreepers, hooded robins and pink cockatoos. Other creatures include pied bats and yellow-bellied sheathtail bats and the kultarr (a long-limbed, bounding, mouse-sized, nocturnal hunter of spiders and inserts).


Gundabooka is off the sealed Kidman Way road from Cobar to Bourke. Approx 50km south of Bourke and 110km north of Cobar.
