Guide to the Robertson Rainforest

Robertson Rainforest is listed as a Threatened Ecological Community under the Biodiversity Conservation Act and as Critically Endangered under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act

Robertson Rainforest historically covered much of the basalt plateau surrounding the town of Robertson. Today less than about 20% of this unique rainforest type remains, with most remnants highly fragmented and disconnected making long-term survival of this rare vegetation community and the animals that rely on them a high priority for protection and connectivity efforts by landowners, environmental groups and the local community.
