Mount Buffalo National Park of 27,280 acres, was first reserved in 1898 and includes the whole of the Buffalo and North Buffalo Plateaux. Few parts of the State exhibit such a wealth of geological and floral interest as does this self-contained natural entity.
The vegetation list was compiled by Mr. J.H. Willis, Assistant Government Botanist, whose tireless work in the field and in the preparation and checking of manuscripts made the list possible.
Three plant species – Buffalo Sallow Wattle, Fern-leaf Heath-myrtle and Weeping Sallee – are believed to be restricted to the National Park, and a further six species may be readily seen there although they are rare elsewhere.
