Eucalyptus leucophylla, Corymbia terminalis, Corymbia aparrerinja and Lysiphyllum cunninghamii frequently appear and can be dominant in small areas.

Fire management guidelines SEASON: Storm season to very early dry season. INTENSITY: Low with occasional moderate. INTERVAL: 4 - 10 years. Adjust intervals/frequency according to rainfall-drought cycles, fuel accumulation and previous fire history. STRATEGY: Ensure burns are undertaken across the landscape at a range of frequencies to create a mosaic of times since fire. Apply numerous small burns every year to achieve a mosaic and reduce risks of wildfire across vast areas of the landscape. Maintain burnt areas < 20%.
Comments This vegetation community was previously mapped as 1.3.6x4. Occurs mainly in the central section of the bioregion.
