Native Plants Queensland's Branch meetings are generally held once a month, varying with individual branches. There is generally a talk given by an arranged speaker with topics including discussions of particular types of plants, slideshows of plant excursions or trips, discussion of plant specimens brought to meetings by members, etc. In addition, some members bring plants to swap and conduct plant raffles.

Branches organize excursions, generally half or one day, to look at Australian native plants in their natural habitat or in gardens. Our walks are characteristically a careful survey of the native plant species, with members clustered around the resident experts debating the identification and growth requirements of all the interesting specimens encountered.

Branch meetings and excursions are both opportunities to meet experienced experts on Australian native plants who are always willing to share their knowledge and advice.

You can join NPQ by attending one of these meetings where membership forms will be available, but please note that all Branch Members must be members of NPQ Queensland Region. In addition to the membership fee for NPQ Queensland Region, Branches charge a levy to cover costs.
