Other, more general, works have also been consulted in the preparation of this page.
- Benson, D.H. and Keith, D.A., 1990. THE NATURAL VEGETATION OF THE WALLERAWANG 1:100,000 MAP SHEET
Cunninghamia, 2(2): pp.147-341. Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney.
(This work has been the main reference for the Newnes area and contains a flora list. However, it only looks at the
natural vegetation of the area and excludes much of Newnes and the floor of the Wolgan Valley since these areas were
modified by human occupancy.)
- Benson, D., Howell, J. and McDougall, L., 1996. MOUNTAIN DEVIL TO MANGROVE. A guide to Natural Vegetation in the
Hawkesbury - Nepean Catchment. 68pp. Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney.
(This is a more accessible version of the above. However, while it covers a much bigger area, it excludes the
Warragamba catchment area. This means that while the Wolgan Valley and most of the Newnes Plateau are covered, the
Cox's River catchment - anything south-west of the Blackfellows Hand fire trail that stretches from Wolgan Gap to
Bungleboori, Clarence and Bell - is excluded.)
- Carolin, R.C. and Tindale, M.D., 1994. "FLORA OF THE SYDNEY REGION" (4th edition) Reed Books, Sydney
(This work contains a workable key that covers the Newnes region, although this book is rather advanced and not
particularly "user friendly" for the beginner.)
- Harden, G.J. (ed.), 1991. FLORA OF NEW SOUTH WALES. 4 volumes. NSW University Press, Sydney.
(Currently, the last word on flora in NSW. Includes keys and diagnostic line drawings, and is thus more "user
friendly" for the amateur. However, it's size limits its ability for field use.)
