About this assessment
The Australian Heritage Council found the Stirling Range National Park in Western Australia is of outstanding national heritage significance as one of the top ranking places in Australia for biodiversity, and one of the most important remnants of the rich flora of the south-west of Western Australia. Almost one fifth of all flora species found in the south-west WA have been recorded in the Park which itself supports 1500 plant species (more than in the entire British Isles). At least 87 of these species are found nowhere else in the world. The beautiful and diverse vegetation of the Stirling Range National Park provides valuable shelter for many bird species including parrots, honeyeaters and thornbills. The range is also a haven for many native Australian mammals including the western pygmy possum and the western grey kangaroo.
The Council's final assessment report as given to the Minister is attached.
In some cases the Minister will have made amendments to such matters as boundaries, values and descriptions, before listing the place. For final listing data visit the Australian Heritage Database or the National Heritage Listing for the Stirling Range National Park .
