Panorama

Towra Point. 21/02/84; New South Wales; 604 ha; 34º00'S 151º10'E. Nature Reserve, Aquatic Reserve. A system of seagrass, mangrove and saltmarsh communities, marine sub-tidal aquatic beds as well as terrestrial vegetation communities. These include she-oak forest, littoral rainforest, littoral strandline and and a complex mosaic of dune sclerophyll scrub/forest. The site contains approximately half of the mangrove communities and over half of the remaining saltmarsh communities in the Sydney region. As one of the few remaining areas of estuarine wetlands in that region, it is important for the survival of many bird species such as the the vulnerable Eastern Curlew (Numenius madagascariensis) , the Brown Honeyeater (Lichmera indistincta), Mangrove Gerygone (Gerygone levigaster), and the Pied Oystercatcher (Haematopus longirostris). Human activities consist of recreation and non-commercial fishing, with surrounding areas developed for industrial, residential and recreational use. Ramsar site no. 286. Most recent RIS information: 2012.
