Kanuka Creek (Site: 76)

Site of State Significance
Cool Temperate Rainforest /Warm Temperate Rainforest

Escarpment mixed forest with Eucalyptus denticulata. High Scenic quality.

Site still good despite recent logging. Logging of old growth in late 1990's in areas that 1986 LCC recommended should be a reserve. (A small patch of old growth forest is still present).

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.)
