BOGONG MOTH

Bogong Moths are well known in south-eastern Australia for their mass migration in spring to over summer in alpine regions such as Mount Buffalo

The Bogong Moth is native to Australia. The common name comes from Bogong High Plains region in the Victorian Alps. They are a small moth about 5 cm long but congregate in huge masses in caves and cracks at locations such as the horn where they can be viewed after dark as they swarm out into the night air in their millions

During winter, Bogongs feed inland as black cutworms on seedlings of wide-leafed plants in Northern locations ranging from southern Queensland to South Australia. During spring, they fly south to south-eastwards, to high altitude regions such as Buffalo. They then migrate north to breed as their larvae can't tolerate cold conditions.
