Goonoo Reserves Vegetation 2018 VIS_ID 4835

Eco Logical Australia (ELA) was commissioned by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) through the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) to undertake vegetation survey and mapping of Goonoo National Park, Goonoo State Conservation Area, Coolbaggie Nature Reserve, Mogriguy National Park and Sappa Bulga National Park (Goonoo Reserves). The project sought to review existing data and mapping and align vegetation communities with the current state-wide vegetation classification through the collection of strategic data on the floristic and structural diversity of the Goonoo Reserves.

The Goonoo Reserves are located approximately between 25 km and 44 km north east of Dubbo in the NSW Central Western Slopes region. Goonoo National Park covers an area of 9,066 ha, Goonoo State Conservation Area covers an area of 54,522 ha, Coolbaggie Nature Reserve covers an area of 1,793 ha and Mogriguy National Park covers an area of 399 ha. Sappa Bulga National Park which is located approximately 11 km south west of Dubbo forms part of this study and covers an area of 121 ha. The Goonoo Reserves located within the Brigalow Belt South (BBS) Bioregion (Pilliga subregion) and the Central West Local Land Service (LLS) Area.

Existing vegetation surveys and mapping were reviewed and supplemented with 18 additional full floristic vegetation plots and over 720 rapid data points (RDPs). Plant Community Type (PCT) mapping was undertaken at a scale of 1:10,000 using a range of datasets including the attribution of segment 30 linework in three dimensions (3D) using stereo ADS40 imagery.
