Brigalow within the Brigalow Belt South, Nandewar and Darling Riverine Plains Bioregions

This low woodland or forest community is dominated by an overstorey of Brigalow (Acacia harpophylla), with Belah (Casuarina cristata) or Bimble Box (Eucalyptus populnea) as co-dominant species. The understorey comprises a diverse range of shrub species and an often-sparse ground layer. Mistletoes are a key component of the community.

The largest stands of Brigalow occur in southeast QLD, with remnant patches occurring across northwest NSW. The community occurs on heavy, cracking clay soils.

Threats to this community include:
  • land clearing
  • fire
  • weeds
  • lack of seed production
  • climate change
For more information, see the NSW Threatened Species Listing for this community and the Australian Approved Conservation Advice for the Brigalow (Acacia harpophylla dominant and co-dominant) ecological community.
