The right plants in the right place

The Blue Mountains is famous for its gardens and its unique bushland.

Those of us who live in the Blue Mountains, in the City within a World Heritage Area, are highly privileged.

Almost all of us live within sight of the bush so we are all bushland neighbours.

How do we choose plants that delight us without invading and disrupting our World Heritage bushland?

Use this site to understand what’s wonderful about our bushland, to learn about weeds and their control, and what alternatives there are for your garden. For more information and to be taught how to use the techniques join Bushcare to find a group near you go to
