Invasive Plants

For maps showing the current and potential distribution of some major invasive plants in Victoria - refer to Invasive Plants on the Statewide VRO website.

Weeds have a serious impact on agricultural enterprises and various species are causing serious degradation of native vegetation and threatening the region's biodiversity values. Despite large commitments of time and money by private landholders and public land managers, weeds remain a major land management problem throughout the region.

The Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) monitors infestations of priority weeds and records details, including the area and severity of infestation, in its Integrated Pest Management System (IPMS) database. Mapping and monitoring is undertaken on a continuous basis but is not complete for the region.

Information about invasive plants and animals in the Goulburn Broken region (external link) is provided on the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority website - including a downloadable version of the Goulburn Broken Weed Action Plan (2001-2005) (external link) and a Weed Identification Booklet. To view the information PDF requires the use of a PDF reader. This can be installed for free from the Adobe website (external link).
