Flora & Fauna at Flyfaire and in the Woomargama National Park

Original Post: 14th of January, 2013

At Flyfaire Wines, we're no strangers to lots of wildlife with kangaroos, wallabies, cockatoos, and wombats in our midst - to name only a few.  However, more and more we find other unique wildlife and flora highlighting how lucky we are to be in the Woomargama National Park.  It covers 24,185 hectares making it the largest protected are of land in NSW west of the Great Dividing Range.  This allows for the impressive range of ecosystems prime for exploring.

To share just a few examples in the park would include a Wattle tree that is unique to the Woomargama National Park (you cannot find it anywhere else on earth!), wild orchids and other wildflowers, birds including the Diamond Firetail (Stagonopleura Guttata) and of course all the other standard Aussie animals.  

Lastly, but not least, whilst this little one might be not so wild or native - we think that anything this cute deserves a photo too.  We have had a string of new calves at Flyfaire to add to our herd and they have a magnificent colouring.  Here is our pick of the bunch.

If you're interested in the Woomargama National Park, we have a local group of volunteers that meet frequently to complete small projects, go on bushwalks, birdwatch and they also have guest speakers who talk about the Aussie bush (forest for our international visitors).  You can read an excellent article from our local paper the border mail about the national park here.
