Butterleaf National Park, Butterleaf State Conservation Area and the Bezzants Lease vegetation mapping was undertaken by Dr John T. Hunter in 2011 by contract for the NPWS Northern Tableland Region and Nature Conservation Trust. Butterleaf and Bezzantes Lease (a previous Nature Conservation Trust Property) are located approximately 10 km east south east of Deepwater.
The vegetation of the Butterleaf National Park and State Conservation Area and Bezzant’s Lease is described and mapped (scale 1:25 000). Nine communities and three sub-associations are defined based on classification (Kulczynski association). These eight communities and three sub-associations were mapped based on ground truthing, air photo interpretation and landform.
