Weeds Watch List

Overview

These are the weeds to look out for in the Southern Highlands. If you think you see one of these, try and take a photo and upload it to the SHNM, so we can determine if it is the species and then Council can take steps to verify the sighting and take action to control it.

There are plants listed here that may become a problem given the changes we are experiencing with climate change.
