What is a Native Grassland?
Native grasslands are naturally-occurring areas that are covered with native grasses and their close relatives in the iron-grass, sedge, reed and rush families, and that have few or no trees. They can be ablaze with colour in spring, with daisies, lilies and other wildflowers. Grassy woodlands, on the other hand, are covered with the same range of native grasses and other low-growing plants, but with widely-scattered she-oaks, wattles, gums and native pines above them.
