Whaleback Ridge

The site sits within the Meredith Range Regional Reserve north of the Pieman River and extends into the XXX Regional Reserve to the south.

The landscape here is characterised by rolling hills covered in heathland and buttongrass moorland, and steep valleys with low tea tree and low eucalypt vegetation.

This is the hunting grounds for the Wedge-tailed Eagle and other raptors that use the thermal currents generated by the uneven topography and the wild westerly winds to soar over a landscape rich in wallaby, pademelon small marsupials. It is also home to a multitude of smaller bird species feeding on insects, seeds and nectars found in the wildflowers that paint this landscape.
