Mallee Scrub

‘The Mallee’ is a term covering several scenarios. The Mallee is a term used to describe areas of the country which are covered in mainly Eucalypts of the mallee type. A feature, and this is what I love, is the variety of smaller plants forming the understory. These plants are often prolific and very colourful flowering plants.

We talk about Mallee towns being those towns, usually in farming communities, which exist because of the mallee areas being cleared for farming.

The photos show parts of Lowan Conservation Park including the access track through the park.

    Thank you for the photo of mallee. I’m reading a novel set in Australia and didn’t know what it was.
