Woodland habitats

Woodlands are places where the trees are spaced apart with heath and grassland in between. They often have open grassy spaces as well as clumps of trees, rocks and bushes.

Notes

Woodland

Woodlands have medium sized trees that do not grow very close together. Common trees in these habitats include eucalypts. Woodlands are good habitats for many different kinds of animals.

Grassland

Natural grasslands are areas where the most common plants are native grasses. Tussock grass often grows in these habitats.

Cliffs and rocky areas

Cliffs and rocky areas provide important shelter for many animals and plants.

Heath

Heath areas are places where the most common plants are low shrubs. During the winter and spring these areas can be covered in wildflowers.
