Ferris Road Grassland

A small stony rise by the railway has preserved flora like Black Anther Flax-lily, Rock Fern and Common Glycine, a precious reminder of the rich grasslands that used to line the railway through Rockbank and Melton, much now lost due to track duplication and suburban development.
