Mitchell grass downs

WWF Abstract

This region got its name from the endless, rolling downs of Mitchell grass that extend from the Northern Territory far into New South Wales, Australia. Because these savannas are a long distance from the coast, annual rainfall is low and drought conditions are common. Still, this is one of the best grazing areas on the continent. Only about 16,500 people live in this ecoregion, all of whom are involved in ranching. Because the vegetation is so uniform, the wildlife found here is not very diverse.
