From high on the escarpment down to the Maribyrnong River, Solomon Heights Grassland (Baldwin Avenue Grassland) in Sunshine North is packed with biodiversity but remains unprotected and under threat from development. It’s big, with over 30 ha of native vegetation, and has the “Big 5” – Striped Legless Lizards, Golden Sun Moths, Growling Grass Frogs, Spiny Rice-flowers and Natural Temperate Grassland of the Victorian Volcanic Plain (NTGVVP).
This grassland can be restored to be a jewel in the crown of Brimbank’s network of ecologically significant sites. The Grassy Plains Network is calling on Brimbank Council to put their considerable resources towards a bold vision and a structured plan.
