The Mallee region

The Mallee Scrub – PDF Sheet

In this land of sunshine, big skies and rich character, you’ll discover a whole new world. It’s not a world you can experience just driving through; it’s a world you need to stop, look at and consider. Don’t assume there’s nothing to see or do. Like many things in life, the Mallee’s beauty is in the detail.

In this seemingly vast landscape, the Mallee’s richness is in the smallest detail, like unique wildflowers and the rare and shy Malleefowl, the passionate and welcoming communities and determined Mallee heritage. The Mallee seems to have the fluffiest clouds and on a clear night there’s a trillion stars sprinkled across the sky. This is a very proud community and region to explore… there’s nothing like the Mallee anywhere else in the world!

Much of our remaining mallee vegetation grows on fragile sandy soil. The plant cover helps stabilise the sandy soils. Damage to this vegetation can lead to shifting sands, eventually creating large blowouts. Please tread lightly on sandy tracks and trails.
