The natural history of Western Australia is unique, with an extremely diverse suite of flora and fauna. The Central & Eastern Avon Wheatbelt region of the Southwest is one of Australia’s 15 recognised Biodiversity Hotspots. Southwest Australia is one of five Mediterranean - type ecosystem hotspots globally, taking up some 357,000 sq.km, with less than 107,000 sq.km of vegetation remaining. The area has over 2,948 endemic plant species growing in some of the most ancient landforms on earth. It is home to an increasing number of endangered flora and fauna species; it's here the Club resides. Rainfall is mainly in winter, with a very hot, dry summer.
