Over the half the island is comprised of original and native vegetation and provides ample habitat for a variety of animals including kangaroo, Southern brown bandicoot, Tamar wallaby, Rosenberg’s sand goanna, echidna, New Zealand fur seal as well koala and emu. Most of the food consumed is produced locally on the island.
