Introduction to the present vegetation of North Arm Cove

Aboriginal Lands. The area would likely have been natural grassland and open woodland that was cared for by the clans of the Worrimi tribe.(More on the original grasslands later).

Post European Settlement .Since the time of European settlement with the arrival of the Australian Agricultural Company in the 1830’s, much of the original eucalypt woodland vegetation was cleared or extensively thinned and converted to grassland, where the original natural grassland did not exist. The bushland that we see around the cove now is open forests and woodlands that has regrown over the last 100 years or so.
