Southeast Australia temperate savanna

WWF Abstract

Spanning across central New South Wales, extensive grasslands mix with the occasional eucalyptus tree in these vast temperate savannas. The terrain consists of low, rolling hills dissected by river valleys. Low and inconsistent rainfall gives this region a demanding climate in which hardy saltbrush shrublands and grasses thrive. In the south, red river gums and black box trees grow along riverbanks, while farther north, bimble box and coolibah trees dominate.
