Strathbogie Ranges - Nature View

Ecology, landscape and natural history in the Strathbogie Ranges, Australia.

Goulburn Broken CMA

‘Peatlands’ and ‘springsoaks’ (springs, bogs, tee-tree thickets etc) are an important ecological, domestic and commercial resource in the Strathbogie Ranges of north-eastern Victoria.

In the years since settlement, these unique communities have been systematically cleared, dug-out, grazed and largely forgotten, to the point where they (and many of the species that depend on these habitats) are now seriously threatened.

The GBCMA recently commissioned research to examine-

(1) The Floristics of Wetlands in the Strathbogie Ranges (Coates, Tolsma, Cutler & Fletcher 2009). A botanical study of the different types of wetlands present in the Strathbogie Ranges.

(2) Hydrology of Strathbogie Wetlands (Stewardson, Western & Wallis 2010).
