Welcome to the Keilor Plains Native Plants Group

We are a district group of APS Victoria, covering the Keilor Plains. Our aim is to study, promote, protect and propagate Australian indigenous flora, especially from local area, where many of the species are classified as threatened or vulnerable, because their habitats have been degraded/altered/lost.
Some of our members also grow plants from other part of Australia in their gardens.

The Keilor Plains is on the eastern part of Victorian Volcanic Plains. Further information can be found here.
