Natural Environment


The Lane Cove municipality has approximately 90 hectares of bushland under the care, control and management of Council. The municipality consists of a series of ridges and gullies bounded by the Lane Cove River to the south.

Lane Cove’s bushland is generally located along the creeks and the river foreshores in long, narrow reserves which also thread through and separate various suburbs along the bushland lines.

Lane Cove bushland offers a diverse array of flora and fauna. There are around 625 species of indigenous plants among them a number of vegetation types such as wet and dry schlerophyll forest, heath land, mangroves and tidal flats.
