Barambah Environmental Education Centre is located within Wrattens Regional Park.
The local area is covered by a range of forest types including dry schlerophyll, wet scherophyll and aurucarian vine forests. The surrounding pre-clearing vegetation consists of smooth barked apple and narrow leaved ironbark.
Adjacent to the Centre the creek flats support a narrow band of forest red gum and rough barked apple. The understorey is generally grassy with occasional scattered shrubs. A narrow band of closed forest along the creek bank, a form of gallery forest, contains rainforest species forming a closed canopy beneath an over-storey of sclerophylls, such as black tea-tree and small-fruited grey gum.

To the east of the Regional Park are a number of hoop and bunya pine timber plantations.
