Upper Tonghi (Tonghi Jungle - Walderon Mts) (Site: 91)

Site of State Significance
Warm Temperate Rainforest

Well developed riparian Warm Temperate Rainforest with stands continuing up tributaries. Escaped major impact of fire. Logging in Creek headwaters has disturbed site.

Very interesting site. Still in good condition however recent logging is of concern around the western crater area. Rare Butterfly on Mt Walderon.
