Mount Kaputar National Park, NSW, Australia

Here a few photos taken at Mount Kaputar NP. Located on the western edge of the Great Dividing Range, this park has an inland climate, with great biodiversity due to a wide range of altitudes, from about 300 m to 1500 m above sealevel. There are also significant differences in fauna and flora on the eastern and western side of the Nandewar Range. Sawn Rocks has a special microclimate, attracting bird species that are normally only observed on the coastal fringe. Mt. Kaputar NP is dominated by eucalypts, i.e. open sclerophyll forest and woodland. Note that some photos presented on this website are available FOR SALE.

When traveling to Mt. Kaputar NP, this road sign at the junction of Old Gunnedah Road and Mt. Kaputar Road, on the outskirts of Narrabri, NSW, shows you the way; the name of the photographer is not mentioned, but...
