Native Plant Giveaway

We'll be delivering our popular Native Plant Giveaway a little differently this year. Multiple small pop up giveaways will be hosted throughout October providing 3,000 plants to Lake Mac residents.

The Native Plant Giveaway provides Lake Mac residents the opportunity to receive two free native plants per household. Local native plants in your garden can attract native wildlife, are better suited to the local soil type and require less water than introduced plants once established.

Plants are supplied by Lake Macquarie Landcare Nursery, which also sell directly to the public with prices starting from $4 per plant.

To comply with COVID restrictions, bookings are essential for the pop-up giveaways, with tickets allocated for a specific session time.
