Woodvine Nature Reserve is situated in south-east Tasmania, about 45 kilometres east of Hobart. The 377 hectare property was donated to the Crown by Mr Herbert Ernest “Ernie” Shaw in 1998, who wanted to protect the plants and animals that lived there. The Woodvine Nature Reserve was subsequently proclaimed on 25 June 2001. Ernie Shaw died on 5 August 2005.
Contrasting with the neighbouring land, the reserve retains an extensive cover of native vegetation that is important for the conservation of rare and threatened species of plants and animals and vegetation communities at the local, regional state and national level. The reserve is important as it supports representative examples of vegetation communities now extensively cleared in south-eastern Tasmania. In particular, Eucalyptus amygdalina
forest and woodland on sandstone, Eucalyptus ovata
heathy woodland, and Themeda triandra
lowland grassland are significant.
