Native plants & animals

The Manning Valley has a diverse and abundant amount of fauna ranging from the Giant Dragonfly recorded at Cattai Wetlands to the Koala which is found throughout the valley. We also have critically endangered flora such as the Yellow Donkey Orchid which is found nowhere else in the world.

Indigenous plants of Greater Taree

Indigenous plants are the natural inhabitants of our area.  Using indigenous plants in our gardens provides food and homes for our native wildlife. 

We have prepared an easy read booklet to assist you in the identification, selection and use of indigenous plants for gardening, landscaping and bush regeneration. 

Clearing vegetation

If you wish to clear vegetation on your land, there are requirements you need to observe.  We have prepared a fact sheet to help you.
