Planting

This warm temperate rain forest only occurs in the area between Metung and Lake Tyers and within 5 Km. of the ocean. The sea fogs and steep gullies contribute to the moist sheltered conditions whilst the limestone soils provide the nutrients. Warmth is provided by the warm currents that sweep down the South coast of N.S.W to meet the Antarctic currents at Wilson's Promontory. Experience the diversity of these forests on our interpretive walk.

Warmth is provided by the warm currents that sweep down the South coast of N.S.W to meet the Antarctic currents at Wilson's Promontory. The rainforest canopy provides shelter for both the powerful owl and the sooty owl. Many other bird species use the food provided by the fruit bearing plants sometimes as permanent residents or in transit migrating from Tasmania to Queensland or just moving south to breed.

Bushcare project - Weed control and provision of nursery trees , principally Blackwood wattles, to provide the shelter to allow the rainforest to redevelop. Seed collection and plant propagation is planned to use existing locally rare plants to re-establish the natural diversity. Jungle grape and yellow wood are the first plants. The cleared and infested areas were used for timber harvesting, gravel extraction and bean growing. In the gully areas kangaroo apple is fast growing and not browsed by deer or wallabies so provides a nursery area for the Blackwood Wattles and the Lillypilly to  establish.
