The Upper Ridges

Burrabungle stretches from the flat areas at the entrance to the top of the ridge that leads to the summit of Mt Korong. Here on the ridge, the land is open and rock-strewn with giants boulders providing shelter for animals and birds.

Picture

Despite the arid appearance of the rock slabs, when the spring comes with its rain, miraculously, the rock isotomes appear and flourish:.

Even ferns and lichens reappear having survive the hot summers by sheltering under the edges of the rocks

 

 

Problems

Rabbits dig down under the rocks and set up warrens but they are not numerous and easily controlled.

The biggest problem is that it is difficult to know what the original ecology of this ridge was. One solution is to wait and see how it recovers.
