Site summary
The IBA supports most of the Victorian population of the endangered Plains-wanderer. The IBA includes large areas of currently unsuitable pastoral and agricultural land which has the potential to be restored to suitable habitat for Plains-wanderers. It also includes an area of woodland which supports the largest regional population of the near threatened Diamond Firetail.
