Yarnel Lagoon is a small wetland located on Wallaroi Creek, approximately 15-km south of Condobolin. It is an important breeding site for 9 species of frogs and Brolga. For this reason it has been selected as a regionally significant wetland as it is important as a habitat for a number of animal taxa at a vulnerable stage in their life cycles, and provides a refuge when adverse conditions such as drought prevails. The current ecological condition is considered good.
The draft ‘Yarnel Lagoon Wetland Management Plan’ which describes the lagoon, its distinctive ecological values and sets out how those values can be maintained in terms of water regime is still under development.
