Nuga Nuga National Park conserves remnants of endangered bonewood scrub and the vulnerable Ooline tree as part of an island of unique and varied vegetation in a heavily cleared landscape. Located in the Arcadia Valley, the park is a perfect spot to appreciate the majesty of Carnarvon and Exedition National Parks.
Lake Nuga Nuga is the largest natural water body within the Central Queensland Sandstone Belt and provides valuable habitat for water birds in an otherwise arid sandstone landscape. Large numbers of birds such as pelicans, black swans, magpie geese, brolgas, grey teal, great crested grebesl, pink-eared ducks, hardheads and plumed whistling ducks use the lake at times. Located on the Brown river, Lake Nuga Nuga occurs within the Comet River catchment and during favourable seasons the Brown river and Moolayember Creek flow into the lake.
It is believed that the lake only formed within the last 160 years, the result of a series of natural events. Heavy rain and flooding of the Brown river filled the existing lake and surrounding swamps, before a scouring flash flood in Moolayember Creek transported large amounts of silt into the vacinity of the lake. When these waters reached the right-angle junction with the Brown River, turbulence caused the deposition of silt to form a natural levee bank at the lake's northern end.
The many dead trees throughout the water area may indicate its relatively short period of existence. The trees are also used by water birds and other wildlife that are concentrated in the area.
