These three parks were reserved under the Brigalow and Nandewar Community Conservation Area Act 2005 and form an important wildlife corridor for native plants and animals between the Brigalow Belt South and Nandewar bioregions.
Goonoowigall State Conservation Area has high cultural significance and was one of the most significant Aboriginal heritage areas assessed as part of the Western Regional Assessment. This park also contains several shared heritage sites including the former tin mining settlement of Ferndale, abandoned in the 1960s.
As remnant bushland in a largely cleared agricultural landscape, the three parks support endangered ecological communities and a suite of threatened plant and animal species, especially woodland birds.
