Hume supports many significant heritage, landscape and biodiversity values. This includes a range of indigenous plants, threatened vegetation communities, wildlife, waterways and sites of cultural and geological significance. Many of these values, such as the ancient River Red Gums and deep waterway valleys of the volcanic plains, define the character of our landscape and contribute strongly to Hume City’s identity and sense of place.

Land and Biodiversity Guidelines

The Land & Biodiversity Guidelines is a series of fact sheets which have been developed as a resource to assist rural landowners and community groups to protect and improve natural resources and rural land.

Hume abounds in natural resources, including native vegetation, wildlife, waterways and soils. These resources support both the healthy function of ecosystems, such as grasslands and woodlands, and agricultural productivity. To ensure these values are sustained into the future, it is important they are protected and improved where possible.
