Glenbrook Native Plant Reserve & APS Blue Mountains Group

      The Australian Plants Society Blue Mountains Group is a district group within the Australian Plants Society NSW Region, which in turn is a district group of the Australian Native Plants Society (Australia).

      The Blue Mountains Group maintain the Glenbrook Native Plant Reserve. The Reserve is located about 60 km from Sydney on the north side of the Great Western Highway, next to Glenbrook Oval and opposite the Blue Mountains Visitor Information Centre at Glenbrook. For a map please click here.

      A small nursery in the Reserve is maintained by volunteers. It specialises in Australian plants and plants indigenous to the Blue Mountains in particular. The Reserve and nursery are open noon - 4 pm on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Entry is free.

      The group adopted the Mountain Devil (Lambertia formosa) as its logo. A photo appears at the top left corner of this page. For a larger copy click here.
