Other Weeds

A full list of other (non-declared) plants of concern and established in the IDNWA area can be found on the South Coast Weeds Website.  The NSW Department of Primary Industries website also provides a complete list of “Garden plants poisonous to people” under its publications page. Many of these plants are common to the Illawarra.

The Nursery and Garden Industry of Australia Grow Me Instead booklets provide detailed information on common garden plants that have become weeds. It also provides suggestions for alternative plants that benefit garden diversity while lessening their potential to become weeds of the future.

The Southern Rivers Catchment Management Authority (SRCMA) Regional Weed Management Strategy provides strategic direction for the management of weeds across the Southern Rivers region. A Weeds of Regional Significance (WoRS) list is detailed in the Strategy along with a priority weed category list for the Illawarra sub region.
