Environment

Vegetation

Many native orchids appear in spring and early summer. These include the Alpine Greenhood along the streams with Pink Fingers, Wax Lips and the common Bird Orchid on the drier slopes. Extensive remnant Manna Gum habitat along the Little River supports a recently reintroduced Koala population.

Animals

Satin Bowerbirds may be seen at the base of the range, beside the Little River. Koalas can be seen throughout the valley area, particularly along the nature walk at Cooks Mill. Their bullet-shaped droppings can be seen under the Manna Gums and at night their loud, pig-like grunting calls can be heard.
