Salt Pan Cove, New South Wales

Salt Pan Cove is located on the eastern foreshores of Pittwater in Newport. The area can be accessed via Prince Alfred Parade leading south down to the creek and cove via log timber steps.

Geography

The parent geology is made up of the shales and sandstones of the Newport Formation of the Narrabeen Group. The derived soils are the moderately deep brown, red and gleyed colluvial podzols of the Watagan soil landscape.

Fauna

A few habitat trees such as Spotted Gum, Cabbage-tree Palm, Swamp Oak, Forest Oak and Blueberry Ash remain. Squirrel gliders, a threatened species in NSW and an endangered population in Pittwater, have been recorded nearby also.
