Amaroo EEC is situated in an area of remnant eucalypt woodland. The Regional Ecosystem designation for our immediate area is 12.8.14, meaning woodland with dominant species including Eucalyptus eugenioides, E. biturbinata, E. melliodora, E. tereticornis, Corymbia intermedia and E. crebra. Allocasuarina torulosa is a common understorey species. This vegetation occurs on Cainozoic igneous rocks, especially basalt. We also have a number of Vine Scrub understory species, including Pittosporum viscidum, Denhamia bilocularis and Jasminum didymum.
In a bid to enhance and protect the natural values of our environment, Amaroo has prepared a guide to recycling in the Toowoomba Region.
