Murrungowar (Site: 52)

Site of Regional Significance
Warm Temperate Rainforest

Remnant Warm Temperate Rainforest on fertile soil, given most been cleared or disturbed.

Made up of approximately four small subcatchments that run along a stepped escarpment. Recent logging (last few years) in one sub-catchment has cut up the site, however other individual sub-catchments are still in good condition. Two southern sub-catchments have varying degrees of protection - one protected by an informal Special Protection Zone and the other by an Special Management Zone.

GoogleEarth images

The Rainforest EVC (Ecological Vegetation Class) and RSOS boundaries have been overlayed onto Google Earth imagery to produce images that give a three dimensional perspective of the landscape where rainforest communities exist in East Gippsland. (Note: Rainforest EVC colour code is not consistent for all images.)
