Australian Association of Bush Regenerators writes…
“Most Australian plants provide valuable resources for wildlife. The best habitat plants provide some food, shelter and nest sites for a range of nectar, fruit, seed, leaf and insect (and other prey) eating animals such as birds, mammals, lizards, frogs and insects and other invertebrates.
The top habitat plant groups which provide many resources for a wide range of Australian animals are Eucalyptus, Angophora, Melaleuca, Acacia, Banksia, Leptospermum and Kunzea.
Shelter plants – many Acacia (wattles), Leptospermum (tea-trees), Melaleuca (paperbarks), Bursaria (blackthorn), Hakea, Ceratopetalum (Christmas bush), Kunzea, Clematis, Pandorea (wonga-wonga vine), Rubus (native raspberry) and any dense and/or spikey planting…”
