Coffs Harbour District Group


About us

Our logo is Syzigium australe/Brush Cherry, which is a hardy rainforest dweller of the Myrtaceae family. It is attractive when in flower, with fruit (edible, but tart) and its shiny green leaves create a healthy look to the garden at other times. The insect pollinators (such as bees) love it as do the nectar eaters such as the Blue-faced Honeyeater (Genus Entomyzon).

Our group's activities and aims include:

  • Promoting our beautiful indigenous trees & flowers on a local basis
  • Providing education on cultivation, & conservation of local plant  species
  • Convening Monthly meetings currently either Tuesday mornings or  evenings, at North Coast Regional Botanic Gardens
  • Arranging field outings to bush sites & properties of interest
  • Producing a local newsletter to keep our members  informed of our news and educational articles on related topics
  • Advertising our activities in local newspapers and on relevant community information boards
  • Involvement in local community events which provide an outreach opportunity to like-minded people
  • Raising funds for the production of a second edition of our book "Growing Native Plants on the  North Coast of NSW"
