Goonoowigall State Conservation Area

Natural Attractions

Goonoowigall is scenic granite country, with low hills and large boulders marking the skyline, and covers 1,057 hectares.

The name Goonoowigall is a Jukumbal Aboriginal word meaning ‘wallaby rocks’ and it features 120 species of native birds, native fauna, remains of Chinese settlements earth covered for a large part, and 10 kilometres of marked walking tracks.

Within the reserve is the Nhunta Karra Kara (a Jukumbal word for ‘quiet and peaceful’) Track to commemorate the Aboriginal families who made the Goonoowigall area their home until the 1960s.

At the main entrance you will find a grassy picnic area, toilet, barbecue and tables. Bring your own water.

Brochures are available from Inverell Tourism or National Parks Offices describing the reserve, as well as the flora and fauna.

This is a lovely area for a stroll or a long trek.
