Natural environment


Estuaries are one of the most important natural assets in the Eurobodalla and support many diverse ecosystems including mangroves, salt marshes, sea grasses, and sandy shoals. Our estuaries are highly productive places and provide spawning and nursery areas for fish and breeding and foraging areas for birds.

Grey-headed Flying-foxes

Flying-foxes have camped in the Eurobodalla region throughout history. In early 2016 unprecedented numbers established camps in Batemans Bay and Council implemented additional management activities to minimise impacts on the community.

Themeda Headlands

In a state first, Eurobodalla Shire Council has applied traditional Indigenous knowledge to implement annual fire management on three Themeda Grassland on Seacliffs and Coastal Headland Endangered Ecological Communities (EEC's). The headlands are all located in the Dalmeny and Kianga area.
