Australia has a large array of plants that are endemic to our country (only found native in Australia). This includes around 80% of the country's flowering plants. Of all the states, Queensland has the greatest variety of native plant groups in Australia. Most of these native plant species are considered non-threatened but more than 1,000 (about 13%) are vulnerable or endangered. The conservation of our native plants provide habitat for wildlife, protects species diversity and provides local catchment improvement which leads to better water quality and public amenity.
