This site contains detailed flora surveys of the native and exotic plants of The Mid North Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

The survey was originally centered on the twin towns of Forster and Tuncurry but over the years has branched out to include other sites within the areas of The Great Lakes, Manning, Gloucester and Port Macquarie. These sites include World Heritage areas such as The Barrington and Gloucester Tops, Riverine and Subtropical Rainforests, Beaches, Estuaries, Lakes, Rivers, Gorges and Offshore islands.

The surveys are being undertaken by Barry M Ralley of Forster. They began in April 2004 and are ongoing. Please click on the above Flora link for all details.


While undertaking the flora survey, much of the fauna was also observed and it was decided to include details of these in sperate databases. Unlike the flora survey which was done by site and areas within those sites, the fauna survey has been done primarily just by site. Please click on the following FAUNA link which contains details of all sites.
