The East Australian Temperate bioregion, located in the Australasia realm, stretches the length of the continent’s east coast and includes Tasmania. It is dominated almost entirely by temperate broadleaf forests with a pocket of alpine grasslands at the top of the Australian Alps. The bioregion contains six ecoregions – Eastern Australian Temperate Forests , Southeast Australia Temperate Forests , Australian Alps Montane Grasslands , Tasmanian Temperate Rainforests , Tasmanian Central Highland Forests , Tasmanian Temperate Forests  – and adjacent marine areas in the Tasman Sea. Its total land area is more than 56 million hectares.
