Puckey's Reserve

Puckeys Reserve

North Wollongong

Once a saltworks, Puckeys reserve is a excellent case study of a coastal dunes ecosystem battling issues of habitat degradation. Stretching north from the lagoon at Stuart Park to Fairy Meadow, the reserve features birdlife, sheoak forest, banksia and other dune species - but in competition with introduced animal and plant species such as rabbits, bitou bush and lantana.
