If you happen to do the drive to Coolah Tops National Park, you need to be aware that a lot of the road is unfenced, and there is stock on the land.
We came across some large Herefords on the road, we were only driving slow and are used to Cattle, so there wasn't a problem. Further on, there were large herds of Goats, and then in the National Park, it was Kangaroo's! It was never ending!
As with many animals, they all have a mind of their own!
We had been at Coolah Tops National Park for quite a few hours and had only seen Crimson Rosella Parrots and a Red Neck Wallaby.
It was about 4pm, and time to head back to camp, when along the dirt road, bounded two big Eastern Grey Kangaroo's, merryily hopping along the road until they decided to head into the bush. No worries, we were only travelling slow, a must do in the N/Park.
The GREATER GLIDER is found in this National Park, but don't expect to see it in daytime.
This is Australia's largest gliding Possum, who happens to be solitary and nocturnal. During daytime, they rest in hollows in tall old trees. They can glide for up to 100 metres. If you wish to see these, it would be best to camp overnight, so you can go searching for them with a spotlight.
Coolah is one of those country towns that still has reverse parking. This means rear end of your car to the kerb.
Be careful driving through here because of this, as cars stop suddenly infront of you and start reversing into a car park. The result is, seeing many cars getting around with dents, and I am sure you wouldn't like a dent in a hire car!
