This dense, semi-arid form of a dry rainforest is dominated by numerous shrub and vine species, including Native Olive (Notelaea microcarpa), Wilga (Geijera parviflora), Red Olive Plum (Elaeodendron australe), Wonga Vine (Pandorea pandorana) and Native Pear (Marsdenia viridiflora). The community has an uneven canopy and density and provides critical habitat to a number of threatened species.
There is often significant species crossover in adjacent vegetation communities, with the same plant species extending into Weeping Myall and Ooline communities. Semi-evergreen Vine Thicket occurs on sandy clay or clay soils on rocky hills and slopes.
Threats to this community include:
- land clearing
- climate change
