WERRIBEE PLAINS - RIVERS

& WATERCOURSES

T

his zone applies to all the major watercourses across



the Werribee Plains zones (eg. the Werribee and

Little River, Skeleton and Lollypop Creeks).

The vegetation on the escarpments of the major

watercourses was originally more diverse than what now

occurs. Tree species included Blackwood, Drooping

Sheoke, Lightwood and River Red Gum. Shrub species

such as Rock Correa and Shrub Violet were also restricted

to these drier areas.  Tree species such as Blue Box and

River Red Gum and shrub species such as Woolly Tea-tree,

Silver Wattle and River Bottlebrush may have occurred

near permanent water. Tussock Grass occurred along the

edges of watercourses.
