Four localities within the Warrumbungle National Park were investigated for the presence of the Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby. Direct observation and faecal pellet identification were used to indicate the animal's presence. Results showed that only Chalkers Mountain had the macropods present, however, within the Park include feral fox and goat control programmed combined with exclusion fencing around optimal habitat. A review of known Brush-tailed Rock-wallby distribution in New South Wales is also recommended as the survey showed a continuing decline of the animal's distribution west of the Great Dividing Range.
