Arnhem Land tropical savanna

WWF Abstract

The rugged gorges and escarpments of this ecoregion, which lead people to call it the "stone country," provide refuge for plants and animals found nowhere else in Australia, let alone the world. Many kinds of habitat are found in this ecoregion, including small patches of rain forest, open eucalyptus forest and grasslands, as well as floodplains and lowland wetlands.
