Flora

Visitors to the Boyne Valley, starting at its northwest boundary of Kroombit Tops, can experience a wide range of plant species nestled against the backdrop of the Many Peaks Range.  From cleared grassland with scattered regrowth to tall open woodlands and forests to patches of vine forests and semi-evergreen vine thickets, visitors can view a unique and diverse range of plant habitats.

While the predominant plant community consists of Lemon-Scented Gum, Forest Red Gum and Moreton Bay Ash, wattles, tea trees and other eucalypts also dot the landscape with their towering magnificence and wide range of colourful blooms.

Whether just passing through or camping in the area, visitors to the Boyne Valley can experience nature at her best. The following tables provide a glimpse of the tree species the Valley has to offer.
