This is a guide to understanding, enjoying and protecting our wonderful natural bushland areas. As a bush neighbour, you are in a special position to know and enjoy our wonderful natural areas and to help them through the changes they face as part of an urban landscape. It also means you hold the key to their protection.
Once part of a vast natural landscape that stretched right across the continent, many of our bushland reserves are now islands in a sea of houses. Without careful management, plants and animals will continue to disappear and the wonderful natural qualities of our bush will be lost.
