Notes: McDougall 1987: �The site has not been grazed recently and appears in excellent condition. Weed cover is sparse. The mosaic of Themeda and Danthonia [Rytidosperma] domination is exemplary of Tussock Grassland structure. The site should be retained for educational and research purposes.� Threatened by development
