Site summary
The IBA supports one near threatened, 11 restricted-range (endemic) and one biome-restricted species. It is an important representative protected area for these species in lowland eastern Tasmania. The endangered Swift Parrot is probably an occasional visitor to the IBA depending on flowering conditions at the south of its range.
