Hartmann Bushland Reserve

This four hectare reserve can be accessed from the corner of Alderley and Rowbotham Streets, Rangeville. It is a Remnant Ecosystem 12.5.6 consisting of Northern Grey Ironbark (Eucalyptus siderophloia), Grey Gum (Eucalyptus punctata) and Tallowwood (Eucalyptus microcorys) and was donated by the descendants of Carl Heinrich Hartmann to the Queensland Government in 1982. It was gazetted as a Reserve under the trusteeship of the Director of the Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service (QNPWS). 

The invertebrates found in the reserve have been recorded over several years by Glenda Walter and are listed in this spreadsheet*.

A blog post by Robert Ashdown records information about Carl Hartmann and a history of the reserve is available. The annual report records recent activity and iNaturalist records observations of flora and fauna.

Volunteers meet every second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 9 am. Please contact Greg on 04 2828 8077 or glukes@bigpond.com.

Hartmann Reserve Species List: Glenda Walter has compiled this species list. The list is intended as a guide only. It includes a few plants, some fungi plus lots of spiders and insects found in Hartmann Reserve. Please note that there are bound to be some errors as the identification of the species was mainly from images. It can be difficult or impossible to identify the specific species using images only, even though we were assisted by various experts where possible. Many species require more details, close examination and/or dissection of specimens before accurate identification can be achieved.
