Environment Information


Our local environment is unique, with rich biodiversity, complex ecosystems, intricate waterways, a wide variety of landforms, soils and generous living conditions.


The Southern Highlands is also home to over 370 native mammal, reptile and bird species, making it one of the most diverse regions in Australia.


With over 7,200km of waterways, the Shire is also an important water catchment region for both our environment and drinking water supplies. With a landscape that includes rainforests, escarpment forests, woodlands, unique villages and farm land, our environment is highly valued by our Community.
