Brookfield Conservation Park

Home to the Southern Hairy-nosed Wombat, Brookfield Conservation Park is managed by Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) who undertake a range of volunteer activities both in the park and in the surrounding area, with a focus on the research of threatened species.

Sections of the park are open to the public to explore this limestone country and enjoy opportunities to see wombats, kangaroos and birdlife such as the rare Stone Curlew, Ground Cuckoo Shrikes and Australian Owlet Nightjars.
