The Forest Ecosystems of the Tablelands region

The Tablelands region is home to a huge variety of forest ecosystems. Rainforests were dominant before the evolution of eucalypts, and remnants remain today. Tall Open Forests contain the giants of the Australian bush, reaching 70 metres or more. Open Forests contain hard-leaved shrubs under an open canopy of smaller eucalypts or she-oaks. The floor of the Open Forest is home to many of Australia’s best known flowers. Grassy Woodlands are home to enormous diversity of plants including eucalypts, grasses, daisies, wattles, legumes, orchids, lilies and many more.
