Invasive plants

Learn about our region's invasive plants, council's programs and how you can protect your place.

An invasive plant is an introduced plant that poses a significant threat to Sunshine Coast’s biodiversity, agriculture, community or economy. You can help by managing invasive plants at your place. Not all green is great for your place.

When choosing plants for your garden stick to planting native or non-invasive plants. For more information on plants that are best suited to your area and garden you can visit council's native plants page, visit a native plant nursery and/or download the GroNATIVE App.


Download the app on your android or Apple device.

Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.
We commit to working in partnership with the Traditional Custodians and the broader First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community to support self-determination through economic and community development.
