Panorama

Flood Plain Lower Ringarooma River is a rare site within the biogeographic region. Unusually for a large river in Tasmania, it flows through flood plains and forms a mosaic of wetlands including permanent and seasonal marshlands and a large river estuary. The Ramsar Site hosts plant communities recognized as threatened under Tasmanian legislation, such as the freshwater aquatic sedgeland and rushland, and Melaleuca ericifolia swamp forest. It also supports a range of globally and nationally threatened species such as the endangered green and gold frog (Litoria raniformis) and the vulnerable fairy tern (Sternula nereis) and dwarf galaxias (Galaxiella pusilla). Hydrological services provided by the Site include the retention of flood waters and the trapping of mine-related sediment. The area has value for indigenous heritage since there is evidence that the flood plain was used by Aboriginal people. Presently, the Site is used for grazing and there is regulated hunting of waterbirds.
