About the Conference

These conferences are normally held every two years and are hosted by each state in turn. The very successful 2019 conference was held in Albany, WA, with around 325 delegates attending.

In 2022, the conference is being hosted by the Australian Plants Society NSW and is being held at the Kiama Pavilion in the beautiful village of Kiama on the pristine south coast.

This year's theme is: ‘Australian flora – past present future’

We will take you on a journey:

  • Travel back to the past to appreciate the land of thousands of years ago
  • Experience the beauty of the current world and the threats it’s facing
  • Project ourselves into the future to design solutions to better protect and enhance our unique floral heritage.

With a series of expert speakers and excursions to surrounding areas, we'll be sharing:

  • The evolutionary history of the Illawarra – its landforms and plants
  • How the land was used and cared for, pre-white settlement
  • Successes in environmental protection, regeneration, horticultural trends and the threats of fire, weeds, feral pests and population growth and development
  • Opportunities with education, plant resilience, collaborations and seed and plant conservation

We kick off the conference on Saturday 10 September, with a complimentary tour of the Kiama region, followed on Sunday by a native plant sale at the Pavilion where you can also pick up any merchandise and complete registration. There will also be a complimentary cocktail event in the evening.

The conference sessions and excursions run from Monday to Friday.
