Eyre Peninsula, SA
Coastal Saltbush is native to every state in Australia, thriving in both high and low rainfall regions. They’re also found clinging precariously to many of the country’s cliff faces such as the coastline along the Eyre Peninsula and the Nullarbor Plains of South Australia.
The endless, sheer cliff faces between the coastal towns of Ceduna and Eucla, form the longest uninterrupted sea cliffs in the world. Varying from 60 to 120 metres in height, these majestic cliff faces disrupt the mountainous swell from the Southern Ocean.
The Eyre Highway has a series of turn-offs providing viewing areas where you view the Bunda Cliffs and if you are lucky, during the Winter months maybe even spot a few migrating southern right whales below.
Coastal saltbush has high salt tolerance and moderate waterlogging tolerance. The plant is known as “dioecious”, meaning that there are separate male and female plants. They often grow in parallel rows with males located closer to the sea.
As you would expect with the Australian coastline, it is a hardy, landscape shrub perfect for exposed windy and salty coastal sites.
Whilst predominantly found along the coast, it is also seen in marshlands and along the coastal fringes in many capital cities.
