The East Australian Mediterranean bioregion, located in the Australasia realm, is situated between the coastal forests to the east and the continent’s great interior deserts to the west. It is a largely Mediterranean woodland biome but is tightly interconnected with the continent’s southeastern temperate savanna. The bioregion contains four ecoregions – Australian Alps Montane Grasslands , Southeast Australia Temperate Savanna , Murray-Darling Woodlands and Mallee , Naracoorte Woodlands  – including Kangaroo Island and adjacent marine areas in Long Bay and below. Its total land area is more than 76 million hectares.
