Barung Landcare

Working for our future


For over 30 years, Barung Landcare has brought together people committed to sustaining and caring for the magnificent natural environment along the Blackall Range and surrounds. 

The Sunshine Coast is home to over 10% of Australia’s native plant species, 25% of Australia’s mammals and over 50% of Australia’s birds, but also has one of the fastest growing human populations of any region in Australia. And in the midst of a Climate Emergency, now more than ever, it is incredibly important that we work together to protect and regenerate our natural areas, sustain and enhance the natural beauty of this region, and protect the unique flora and fauna that call this place home. 

By supplying locally sourced native plants through our well established native nursery, connecting people through our diverse education and engagement programs, and providing essential bush regeneration services to protect and regenerate our landscape, Barung Landcare is dedicated to working for our future. Join with us and our wonderful team of volunteers in creating a better future for the Sunshine Coast region, its locals, visitors and businesses.
