Where is Leard State Forest?

Leard State Forest is a short way off the Kamilaroi Highway between Boggabri and Narrabri, and adjoins the farming community of Maules Creek, in north west NSW. 

The forest is an 8000 hectare biodiversity hotspot – home to 396 native plant and animal species. There are plans to clear more than half of the forest to make way for open-cut coal mines.

Leard State Forest is part of the Gomeroi Nation.
