Rare, remnant and endemic plants of the Tablelands region

Over hundreds of millions of years the plants that cover Australia’s vast landscapes have evolved as conditions have changed. However remnants of plant communities that used to be commonplace still remain in places. The Tablelands region is home to many rare and endangered plant species. There are endangered trees such as the ancient Wollemi pine and the Kowmung red cedar, as well as endangered communities such as box-gum woodland and Newnes Plateau swamp. There are also many endemic plants. Two examples are Chalkers and Kowmung wattles.
