Flora

Plunkett Regional Park has been well known to botanists and naturalists for a long time because of its unique flora combinations and its unusual geological nature within the area.

It is a sandstone “plateau” with impressive cliffs (north and east sides), caves and gullies.

The flora is mostly dense heath under eucalypts although certain rainforest species occur in sheltered gullies.
