Donnybrook Cemetery, (part of) Conservation Area 24

The southern half of Conservation Area 24, Donnybrook Cemetery has a unique suite of species including Endangered Matted Flax-lily and unusual peas. Damage in 2023 made ABC TV news and highlighted bad management, including cars carving turning circles and parking on grassland, weeds, no burns, and no signage.
