Wombat
‘Wombat’ protects critically endangered Shale Sandstone Transition Forest and a vital habitat link

The 4.8 hectare property ‘Wombat’ was donated by a corporate donor (TransGrid) in early 2018 and forms a key link between Blue Mountains National Park and Mulgoa Nature Reserve. These east-west links are critical to the annual migration of Scarlet, Flame and Rose Robins, which migrate from the Blue Mountains to the fertile Cumberland Plain each winter.

The property at 571 Mulgoa Rd Regentville includes “Critically Endangered” Shale-Sandstone Transition Forest, the endangered Dural Land Snail (Pommerhelix duralensis) the largest known local population of the regionally rare wattle Acacia prominens, a population of Common Wombat and a recent encouraging find was that of the uncommon vine Marsdenia rostrata.
