Beecroft Peninsula Flora Study

Department of Defence

Red Flower - Beecroft Peninsula Flora studyThe vegetation on the Range of the Beecroft Peninsula at Jervis Bay is diverse and of high conservation value. The vegetation is relatively undisturbed as it is geographically isolated, as restriction of access and development has been imposed by the Department of Defence.

573 plant species were recorded during the 4 season survey. 8 of these were rare or threatened. Within the Range 8 primary and 27 secondary types of distinctly different vegetation were identified.

Many recommendations were made to help protect this diverse and unique environment such as cleaning vehicles before entering the bushland and no importation of soil.

We also prepared a fire management pan for this site, as it is an essential part of vegetation management of the Range.
