Warringal Conservation Society

There is a variety of remnant indigenous and exotic historic vegetation throughout the reserve, with some vegetation communities classified as endangered. These support the wide range of fauna seen at Banyule Flats, including Eastern Grey Kangaroo, Echidna, Swamp Wallaby and Wombats.

Due to the constant water sources of both the Yarra River and the Banyule Swamp, bird life (both bush and waterbirds) is plentiful. A total of 153 bird species have been sighted within the reserve, including Powerful Owl, Black-winged Stilt and Cattle Egret. Some species are rare or threatened in Victoria, while others are significant migrants, such as Latham’s Snipe.
