A Starter List of Animals in the Area

This page contains a list of animals observed within 5km of the location '4210 Illawarra Highway, Robertson NSW', as extracted from the Atlas of Living Australia database on 10 April 2011.

The intention is to assist in building up an understanding of the fauna that may be in the rainforest. But most of the sightings were from eucalypt forests and agricultural land rather than lilli pilli rainforest, and it's likely that many of these species would not be found in the rainforest.

The list has been broken into animal-groups meaningful to laypeople, and missing species-names have been interpolated.

The pragmatic groupings used are as follows. They have been split into three pages, to improve manageability:
