Coming Events

The Society's Regions and District Groups all hold a range of activities throughout the year. Activities include plant sales, wildflower exhibitions, tree and shrub plantings, bush regeneration days, garden visits, bushwalks and regular meetings.

The activities listed here are by no means a complete programme of all activities. They have been selected as being of particular interest to those who are not (yet?) Society members. They also include activities by other organisations.

Details of other Society activities can be obtained from these web sites of the Society's Regional Groups:
