The Barung Landcare native plant nursery supplies plants for use in revegetation and native gardens. We grow plant species which occur naturally in the forests of the Sunshine Coast. Our nurseries are run by a small team of staff with a dedicated team of volunteers. We supply a diverse range of quality plants to Barung members and the local community with capacity to supply large regional revegetation projects.
Established in the Hinterland township of Maleny, the Barung Landcare native plant nursery is renowned for growing local rainforest species and has made a significant and ongoing contribution to the restoration and conservation of the regions wonderfully diverse rainforests.
We also propagate a range of other local native species for ecosystems found across the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, visit our Porters Lane nursery to see what is on offer, or download the monthly stock list to see what’s seasonally available.
