Dataset: NSW - CRA/RFA - Forests - Lower North East - National Estate - Important Habitat


National Estate important habitat was defined as areas of national significance in terms of concentrations of forest ecosystems dominated by winter-flowering species.

The areas identified included the forested and significantly unmodified areas along the great escarpment, rainforest areas under 300m above sea level and areas with concentrations of winter-flowering species.
