Over 260 species of native plants have so far been identified in the bushland areas of the Wolli Valley. You will find something in flower at any time of the year. Late winter and early spring are the best times to see wildflowers.

The valley is the last significant chunk of the original bushland of inner south-west Sydney. The genetic stock of its plants is therefore of great interest to botanists.

Marrickville Council has a native plant nursery in the Addison Road Community Centre. Most of its tube stock is sourced from seeds or plants in this valley and these are available for the public to buy.

Below is just a small sample. If you have good photos of flowers you would like to submit, please email them to: info@wollicreek.org.au

Hairpin banksia (Banksia spinulosa) False sasparilla (Hardenbergia violacea)
Sunshine wattle (Acacia terminalis) Crimson bottlebrush (Callistemon citrinus)
Daphne heath (Brachyloma daphnoides) Tongue Orchid (Dendrobium linguiforme)
Sword wattle (Acacia elongata)
