About Toorale National Park and State Conservation Area
The Toorale National Park and State Conservation Area (Toorale) is located at the junction of the Warrego and Darling Rivers about 65-kilometres south-west of Bourke in north-western NSW.
Toorale, a former agricultural property, was purchased in 2008 to protect its outstanding environmental and cultural values. At the same time, the Australian Government purchased the water access licences held by Toorale. These licences are now held by the Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder and used to deliver environment benefits on Toorale and in the Darling River.
The National Parks and Wildlife Service's Toorale National Park webpage has more information on the national park.
River flows through Toorale are very variable – from extended periods of no flow, or low flows to high flows that are usually caused by ex-cyclones in Queensland. Like many river systems in the northern Basin, the interactions between flows in the river and the park are complex and can vary with each flow event.
