Macedon

The Macedon project is focused on maintaining and protecting the existing remnant vegetation on site, which makes up a continuous 15 ha section of the Mt Macedon Regional Park. Management activities have focused on eliminating the weeds on site, including pine, holly, arum lily, foxglove, and spear thistle. The site provides high-quality habitat for a range of native orchids, and threatened species including the Brush tailed phascogale. The site adjoins and protects the Slaty Creek which is home to several native species, including a population of platypus.
