Restoring the Big Scrub
to the Big Scrub
The Big Scrub, our local rainforest, covered 75,000ha prior to European settlement. It was the largest expanse of lowland subtropical rainforest in Australia. It is directly descended from the great Gondwana rainforest that covered Australia 40 million years ago. It is unique. It is internationally significant. It is a very important part of Australia’s rich biodiversity heritage. Tragically European settlers cleared almost 99% of this magnificent rainforest and by 1900 all that remained was less than 1% as scattered remnants across the landscape.
Founder of Big Scrub Rainforest Conservancy, Dr Tony Parkes reflects on restoring the Big Scrub, the issue, what has been done and where we are going.
