Barung nursery supplies plants for use in revegetation and in native gardens.
We grow plant species which occur naturally in the forests of the Sunshine Coast. Our nurseries are run by a small staff with a dedicated team of volunteers. Our aim is to supply a diverse range of quality plants to Barung members and the local community with capacity to supply large regional revegetation projects.

Established in the Hinterland township of Maleny, Barung nursery is renowned for growing rainforest species and has made a significant and ongoing contribution to the restoration and conservation of the regions wonderfully diverse rainforests.
Long time Barung members Di and Ian have been revegetating their property on the Blackall Range for 20 years and have planted some 30,000 trees mostly supplied by Barung. ‘It’s a joy to walk around the nursery picking out our trusty favourites and discovering new gems we can add to the forest’. ‘Quality, quantity and diversity, it’s just brilliant’
SEQ water Maleny project
On the slopes above the Northern Precinct wetlands in Maleny is a new forest planted in 2011/12 with plants grown by Barung. 40,000 tubes were planted as part of Maleny’s wastewater management. Treated wastewater is irrigated through the forest to slowly seep into ground water. Today, some trees are 8m high and the canopy is closing.
This is a great example where quality grown tubestock contributes to the success of a project.
