Central Gippsland rainforest
Please note: Central Gippsland webpages and content is still under initial development.
Central Gippsland contains two distinct rainforest communities. Cool Temperate Rainforest contains myrtle beech and southern sassafrass and grows in the Strzelecki Ranges. Warm temperate rainforest is found at Wilsons Promontory.
All Wilson Promontory rainforest sites of significance are protected within a National Park.
Most of the rainforest in the Strzelecki Ranges is under threat from logging by "private land" logging operations. These rainforests are under a 100 year lease to an international American plantation logging company called Hancock.
