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 20 local branches generally holds a monthly meeting in addition to other excursions and activities.
Don't miss our Native Plant Markets and for a complete list of all meetings and events, please check our Calendar.
