Native Plant Inventory

The riverbank section of our property is defined (by the Department of Environment and Resource Management)as ‘Riverine wetland or fringing riverine wetland’ and as such has rich loam soil. This regional ecosystem (12.3.1)  is listed as endangered. Before White Settlement the riverbank was  composed of complex to simple notophyll vine forest.

The higher flat section of our property is described as ‘Eucalyptus tereticornis woodland to open forest on alluvial plains’.(The status of this regional ecosystem (12.3.3) and its biodiversity is  listed as endangered.)

Through the Land for Wildlife Program we are given plants that are suitable for this area and we are able to have expert advice from the Moggill Creek Catchment Group which also offers seedlings of plants that are native to this catchment. ‘Putting Back the Forest’ (by B. Hacker, R Butler & R. Rekdahl) is an invaluable guide to the needs of our particular location.

The following list identifies the main plants that exist or have been planted by us, mostly in the area close to the river. The list will be updated  from time to time with other more unusual natives.
