Abstract

Flora and fauna surveys were conducted at the Spring Bay Mill property and adjacent area near Triabunna in 2019 as part of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery’s ongoing research, collection-building and nature-discovery program entitled Expeditions of Discovery. Although a large portion of the mill site has experienced significant disturbance, some bushland remnants on the property and the adjacent coastal reserve remain in very good ecological condition and are refugia for species now lost from the wider landscape. The survey recorded 1088 taxa, principally from the targeted groups of vascular plants, bryophytes, lichens, beetles, butterflies and moths, with several of the taxa, chiefly lichens and invertebrates, either new to science or new records for Tasmania. The survey expands our knowledge of the flora and fauna of the Triabunna area and serves as a baseline for a property undergoing strategic rehabilitation after a long history of industrial use.
