Brisbane Western Suburbs


Brisbane's Western Suburbs branch meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm.  We meet in the Chapel Hill State School Administration Building.  Enter the grounds via Ironbark Road, Chapel Hill.


David Hanger convened a meeting of members in the western suburbs of Brisbane on 16th May 1972.

Here the Western Suburbs Branch was born, with David Hanger as Chairman and N. Keating as Secretary and Treasurer. In 1979 this Branch published a book (in loose-leaf and bound forms) called, Perfumed and Aromatic Australian Plants, compiled and written by Ralph Bailey.

On 1st June 1982, Western Suburbs amalgamated with the nearby Oxley Branch of SGAP. For a time the Branch became known as Western Suburbs/Oxley Branch, but in 1990 it reverted back to Brisbane Western Suburbs Branch.
