Coolah

Coolah is a block of open eucalypt forest dominated by snow gums, ironbarks and grass trees. It sits in the Warrumbungle Range between Warrumbungle National Park (south and west) and sheep grazing territory of the Coolah surrounds (north and east). After a history of selective logging that ended 40 years ago, the Coolah block is today densely reforested with protective boundary fencing, four dams, estabished fire breaks and a small solar-powered hut that supports management activities.

 

Ninety percent of the Coolah property is permanently destocked and feral controlled, with an additional 40 ha of successfully rehabilitated forest being devoted to wildlife conservation. Other management at Coolah involves thinning of selected overly-dense regrowth in order to extend fire break protection, and recycling of this harvested timber for stock-proof fencing of the riparian zone, remant vegetation and farm dams at Coolah and nearby Carrawatha.
