Barayamal National Park incorporates approximately 178 ha and lies within the eastern outskirts of Inverell on the North Western Slopes Botanical District and the
New England Bioregion.

The vegetation of Barayamal National Park is described and mapped (scale 1:25 000). Five communities are defined based on classification (Kulczynski association). These six communities were mapped based on ground truthing, air photo interpretation and landform. Much of the reserve is characterised by Lespedeza juncea was the most ubiquitous species within the reserve. Overall the character of the vegetation within the reserve can be described as being dominated by herbs and grasses and in particular Lespedeza juncea, Themeda triandra, Dichanthium sericeum, Swainsona galegifolia, Sorghum leiocladum and Bothriochloa macra. All communities described are of conservation significance.
