Plants of the Box Gum Grassy Woodlands

Flora, Resources


Box Gum Grassy Woodlands are a feature of Eastern Australian landscapes. This vegetation community is listed as an Ecologically Endangered Community because of the flora and fauna this community supports, including the species of White Box, Yellow Box, and Blakely’s Gum. 

The Hunter Region Landcare Network is currently running a Woodland Birds School Education Program 2019 – 2023. This is funded through the National Landcare Program Phase 2 and Local Land Services Project, Bringing Back the Regent Honeyeater: a flagship species for our forests, farms, rivers and woodland birds to help preserve what we have left of this vegetation community.
