The escarpment parks protect the habitat and support viable populations of many different species of native plants and animals because of their large size and undisturbed nature. They include caves and other karst environments that provide a significant geomorphological resource in addition to providing habitats for a diversity of cave-living animals.
Monga National Park, Wadbilliga National Park and Deua National Park contain extensive areas of wilderness as well as recreation facilities such as picnic areas, campgrounds and walking tracks.
