"This natural refuge is perched upon the roof of the University of Tasmania's new campus in Burnie. It was created with more than 11,000 plants, shrubs and grasses from 26 local species.
And according to the specialist green infrastructure company that created it, the roof will become a magnet for native wildlife.
"I don't think you would be surprised if you find mutton birds actually burying in there," Fytogreen managing director Geoff Heard said.
