Cumberland Land Conservancy – Wallaroo, NSW

This trail location is owned and accessed by the Cumberland Land Conservancy (CLC). Purchased by the Commonwealth Government and gifted to Cumberland Land Conservancy in early 2016. "Wallaroo" covers 38 ha in Mulgoa and protects Critically Endangered Cumberland Shale Hills Woodland, Cumberland Riverflat Eucalypt Forest and provides habitat/foraging for six species of endangered wildlife.

In 1877, Cumberland Plain Woodland covered 107,000 hectares or about 30 percent of the Sydney Basin. It is one of the most heavily cleared landscaped in Australia, with farming and urban development shrinking it to just 6400 hectares. 

Cumberland Land Conservancy (CLC), a volunteer-operated not-for-profit organization, is working to protect and restore Critically Endangered woodlands of Western Sydney. The core purpose is to acquire and conserve land locally for wildlife preservation, with its first acquired property being ‘Wallaroo’.
