Checklist – Township Lagoon, Tunbridge

Despite being one of the most barren-looking places in Tasmania, particularly in drought years, the Township Lagoon, Tunbridge is really a hotspot for rare plants. I have erected a very provisional native plant checklist here based on 4 visits I have made to the place. There has been some published work on the flora of the Township Lagoon by Zacharek et al. (1997) which I will eventually incorporate into the current checklist after I visit the place a few more times.
