The Terrick Terrick National Park north of Bendigo contains the most significant remaining area of the once extensive native grasslands of northern Victoria. It is home to many rare or threatened species such as Buloke mistletoe, Woolly Cloakfern, Bush Stone-curlews, Barking Owls and Greycrowned Babblers.
