Dingo Creek

Dingo Creek Cool Temperate Rainforest and Wet Forest Buffers Protected (October 06)

There is virtually no rainforest left in the headwaters of Dingo Creek, although there are still scattered Myrtle Beech trees.

Clearing and planting of mountain ash was carried out at Mount Mabel Track in the late 1980s. This activity has resulted in substantial erosion into the headwaters of Dingo Creek and has blocked the creek. Much of Massive erosion of this area has been caused by now failed plantation.

A small area of Messmate forest remains between Dingo Creek headwaters and the Midland Highway just south of Christies.
