Oolambeyan National Park is a former sheep station, purchased by the NSW government in 2001 in order to protect the endangered plains-wanderer, a small quail-like bird. The park is located approximately 90 km south east of Hay and is open for day visitors. The park features a historic homestead (closed to public), sheep sheering shed and quarters, a cricket pitch and a number of access tracks suitable for walking or bike riding. The main attraction is the many birds that make this place their home.

I spent a few hours here, exploring the former working quarters of the former station. While I did not see many birds, there were many emus and kangaroos grazing on the open plains.
