About this fact sheet
The Grey Box (Eucalyptus microcarpa) Grassy Woodlands and Derived Native Grasslands of South-Eastern Australia were once widespread inland, from central New South Wales, through Victoria, to eastern South Australia. Since European settlement, much of this ecological community has disappeared or become degraded. The little remaining in good condition is now protected by national environment law (Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999).
