ACT & High Country

The Australian Capital Territory and adjacent 'high country' of New South Wales is a unique climatic bioregion. The area is home to an interesting and diverse flora. It is important to remember that an invasive plant in neighbouring areas or states may not be invasive in such a generally 'high altitude' climate and vice versa. It is prudent to seek sound local advice before making plant selection.

The ACT and adjacent 'high country' is home to many significant national parks and state forest areas. It is of paramount importance that sound plant advice is sought before planting adjacent to these sensitive areas. Consideration must be given to appropriate plant choice as birds and other animals can distribute seeds into nearby bush-land and natural areas causing immeasurable destruction of natural habitat.
