Mount Bar­ney is home to more than 34 mam­mal, 182 bird, 40 rep­tile and 71 frog species as well as count­less in­sects and other in­ver­te­brates.

Six wildlife species, in­clud­ing the east­ern bristlebird and the Coxen’s fig­par­rot, are listed as en­dan­gered, while as many as 13 species of an­i­mals are re­garded as near threat­ened. So tread lightly and have your cam­era ready. Some of the most com­mon crit­ters to see in­clude wal­la­bies, lace mon­i­tors and kan­ga­roos. Could this bush bash be any­more true blue Aussie?
