Its an odd looking things hey, not uncommon at the coast but a good find with our boundary.

Towards the very eastern edge of the CNM region boundary on the mountain range that is more akin to the vegetation prevalent in South Coast Nature Map.

Yes agreed Matthew same with other species e.g. birds, many coastal birds are also found just into the CNM region along these ranges (I believe the border follows the boundary of Queanbeyan Palerang Council).
