Welcome to the Plants of Sydney website. This site aims to enable locals and visitors to identify some of the most common and conspicuous species of native plants around the Sydney metropolitan area. As new plants have been added recently, more have come from a wider range of areas, with most of the photographs taken in the Ku-ring-gai Chase, Royal National and Lane Cove National Parks, the most magnificent Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden, Sydney Harbour National Park and the UTS Ku-ring-gai Campus.
