Native Flora of Greater Dandenong

A wide range of species can be found within the City of Greater Dandenong from large old Red gum trees to small delicate wild flowers. The distribution of this vegetation is determined by environmental factors such as soil type, rainfall, hydrology and topography. Native flora is essential for maintaining a healthy ecosystem and provides important habitat for our native fauna.   

There are a number of rare and endangered plant communities or Ecological Vegetation Classes (EVCs) and species of flora that are found within the bushland reserves. You can also download the Guide to Native Plants of Greater Dandenong (PDF - 2.9MB).   

The City of Greater Dandenong’s bushland reserves allow you to get up close and experience the beauty of our native flora. Join the rangers on guided wildflower walks during spring or attend our planting days where you can plant indigenous plants and help create habitat for our local flora and fauna. See our environmental events for more details.
