Local Provenance Plants for Sydney's Inner West

The Rozelle Bay Community Native Nursery and associated Bushcare Groups are reintroducing some of the diverse range of plants that once grew in the area. These local provenance species and strains have adapted to the local area's climate, rainfall patterns, salt water innundation, sunlight, soil, birds, animals and insects. The purpose built nursery located in Whites Creek Valley at Wisdom Street Annandale, features recycled ironbark timber from the old Pyrmont Bridge. Ironbark forests once grew in Annandale.
