These flat alpine grasslands provide a form of water catchment in this region and include a range of species of wetland grasses and herbs. Of particular interest are the rushes (Juncus) and sedges (Carex) which are present throughout the wet grassland.

This area, with its rocky outcrops, provide habitat for several bird species including Richard’s Pipit, which nests in the long grasses, and the migratory Latham’s Snipe. A rare and colourful species of duck, the Australian Shoveller, has been recorded on the open wetland

These wetlands are also an ideal habitat for a variety of frogs and snakes.
