Native Species Planting Guide for Tweed and Byron Shires

Along with Tweed Shire Council, Brunswick Valley and Tweed Landcare groups, we have developed an interactive online resource - The Native Species Planting Guide for Tweed and Byron Shires.

You can use the guide to:

  • select local native species from options that meet your size, flower colour, location requirements and environmental needs (e.g. salt hardy)
  • produce a ‘personally’ selected planting list for your specific location
  • access links to images and further information.
