Winter Gathering at Sherwood Arboretum, Brisbane

All Native Plants Queensland members and friends are invited to our Winter Gathering at Sherwood Arboretum, Brisbane, which will be hosted by Western Suburbs branch on Saturday 29 June 2019.

Please do come along from 9.30am for a short talk, guided walks and the opportunity to socialise over a shared morning tea and lunch.

The Sherwood Arboretum is a heritage-listed arboretum with a collection of more than 1000 specimen trees, spread across a unique range of environments: river mangroves, hillside, deep gully, open spaces, pond and island, and ephemeral creek. The 15ha area includes some concrete paths and easy walking.

Western Suburbs Branch has had a long association with the Arboretum and, in 1988, planted a small rainforest in a steep-sided weedy gully. It has now been transformed it into a mature forest.


9.30am  Meet and greet for bring-to-share morning tea
10.00am  Introduction and talk
11.00am  Guided walks
12.00pm  Bring-to-share lunch
After lunch, the chatting and walking will continue!

We will meet not far from the car park, close to the waterway and a small observation platform. There is no shelter shed in this area so please bring your own chair and thermos. Marquees and chairs will be provided.

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.
