Native Plants Queensland is a community-based organisation committed to growing, conserving and studying Australian plants.

Robert Ellis

November 1951 - September 2018

In memory of Rob, a long-serving and an integral member of Native Plants Queensland, being a Vice President and Asset Manager and serving on several committees, including the Flower Show Committee.

Rob was a quiet achiever, apart from ensuring much of the infrastructure for the Flower Shows was in place, he also set up “his” wheelbarrow raffle which will continue at ongoing Shows as a tribute to him.

Rob’s love of Native Plants and dedication to Native Plants Queensland, and in particular, Western Suburbs Branch, was second to none. His smiling face and sense of humour will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.

A dear friend and great mate. Please keep Rob’s wife, Shirley, in your thoughts and prayers during this sad occasion.
In memory of Robert Ellis

Well done Rob, you made a difference.
