Members and visitors are invited to the NPQ Winter Regional Gathering on Sunday, 17 June 2018. We will be hosted by Pine River Branch at Kumbartcho Environmental Centre and Nursery, on the banks of the South Pine River.

Aside from the usual pleasure of talking plants and socialising, we will be treated to a presentation by members who attended the 2018 Biennial Conference held by the Australian Native Plants Society (Australia) in Hobart, Tasmania. They will be sharing their highlights and insights from the wonderful 5-day program of speakers, plus the special tours and daily excursions to such locations as Mt Wellington, Lauderdale Saltmarsh, Bruny and King Islands, and the Tahune Airwalk. Don't miss this!

There will be a cuppa and complimentary morning tea at 9.30am, but you may like to arrive earlier to browse the nursery which is open from 8.00am to 12.00pm.
