Cable Beach Ghost Gum mapping
Mapping and documenting Broome’s endemic and restricted Corymbia paractia
The restricted Cable Beach Ghost Gum (Corymbia paractia) is endemic to the Broome region.
It is the dominant tree within the WA Priority 1 ecological community — Corymbia paractia dominated community on dunes.
Environs Kimberley, with funding from Eucalypt Australia, has worked with Society for Kimberley Indigenous Plants and Animals (SKIPA), Nyamba Buru Yawuru and Broome Botanical Society to comprehensively map the distribution of the species. Surveys were carried out in 2013-14 and 2016.
We also compiled traditional ecological knowledge about ghost gums, known as gunurru by Yawuru people.
A report on the findings of surveys of Corymbia paractia on the Broome Peninsula is available here:
