Plants at Urrbrae Wetland

The native vegetation which existed prior to European settlement, and now found in the wetland, is generally known as Grey Box Woodland. This ecological community is now classified as 'threatened' by the Australian Government Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities.

Grey Box Woodland

The Grey Box Woodland consists mainly of Eucalyptus microcarpa, commonly known as the grey box due to its bark colour. It was a dominant species on the southern Adelaide Plains. Over the years the Friends have planted over one hundred indigenous terrestrial and aquatic plant species to maximise diversity, habitat and serve as a resource for other revegetation projects.

Canopy plants

Grey Box (Eucalyptus microcarpa), River Red Gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) South Australian Blue Gum (Eucalyptus leucoxylon) and Drooping Sheoak (Allocasuarina verticillata), Callitris gracilis and Native Apricot.
