Discrete Identification by Experts:

Willi Willi Caves - near Kemspey. Bat experts suggested that all forested areas within a 60 km radius of Willi Willi caves were of national significance. Willi Willi caves is the largest known maternity roost for the two migratory bat species Miniopterus schreibersii and M. australis in NSW. The 60 km radius was calculated using the known average maximum population at the cave of pregnant and lactating females, their apparent maximum foraging range and density, and the promixity of caves of similar importance on the Carrai Plateau (included within the 60 km radius).


The Gibralter Range, Washpool and Ewingar forest areas represent among the best development of moist eucalypt forests in the world. Some experts consider NE NSW as the centre of evolutionary development of such types. The area also represents the best development of species richness for arboreal marsupials and macropods in NE in large spatial units.
