About the region
Lake Bindegolly is a national park in Dynevor, Shire of Bulloo, South West Queensland, Australia, 871 km west of Brisbane and 40 km from the town of Thargomindah. It is in the Mulga Lands bioregion and was established to protect a population of the rare plant Acacia ammophila. It has three lakes, two saline and one freshwater.
A 318 km2 area of the lake and its surrounds has been identified by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area (IBA) because it has supported over 1% of the world populations of blue-billed ducks and red-necked avocets as well as populations of the biome-restricted inland dotterel, Bourke’s parrot, slaty-backed thornbill, grey-headed honeyeater, black honeyeater, pied honeyeater, Hall’s babbler, chirruping wedgebill and chestnut-breasted quail-thrush.
