Washpool and Gibraltar Range, contrasting neighbours

Washpool and Gibraltar Range Parks are completely different landscapes, occuring either side of a road.

Washpool and Gibraltar Range Parks are listed as World Heritage Sites.

Washpool Park is home to the Twin Cedars, a pair of 1000-year-old trees.

The Demon Fault is a 200km long fracture that divides the parks in two.

Gibraltar Range Park is home to the Needles: six rocks that Aborigines believe were six sisters turned to stone.

The koala, powerful owl and spotted-tail quoll are among the rare species that live in the parks.
