About this assessment
The Australian Heritage Council found the spectacular Warrumbungle National Park, with its unrivalled volcanic landforms, of outstanding national heritage significance. Its range of landscape features—from moist landscape in the east to dry plains in the west—provides important habitat for a rich diversity of plants and animals. Its dramatic landscape of spires, domes, plugs and dykes is uncommon in Australia, and its bold and spectacular views have attracted artists and photographers such as the renowned Australian photographers Frank Hurley and Max Dupain. The AHC found the Warrumbungles are also nationally significant as one of the best examples of a number of central shield volcanoes along the east coast of Australia, presenting an outstanding diversity of volcanic features within a relatively small area.
The Council's final assessment report as given to the Minister is attached.
In some cases the Minister will have made amendments to such matters as boundaries, values and descriptions, before listing the place. For final listing data visit the Australian Heritage Database or the National Heritage Listing for the Warrumbungle National Park.
