Native Plants Queensland arranges a wide variety of events, outings and activities throughout the year.
Quarterly gatherings, hosted on a rotating basis by various branches, are intended to bring together members from multiple areas to share news, native plant information and social time. We also hold a biennial conference, known as our Yabba, in different parts of the state. The emphasis of this conference is learning about the flora and habitats of the host region.
Each of our 19 local branches generally holds a monthly meeting in addition to other excursions and activities.
In 2020, all these events have been impacted by Covid-19. Smaller local meetings have resumed with appropriate Covid-19 arrangements. You can find more details on the Calendar.
The Native Plants Queensland Regional Council is continuing to review all event plans to ensure the welfare and safety of NPQ Members, and to support government and community efforts to respond to Covid-19. We encourage you to follow all medical recommendations and make whatever decisions necessary for your own wellbeing.
