There are many weeds throughout the NSW North Coast, some of them are noxious weeds and some are environmental weeds. A noxious weed is a weed that must be controlled by law. An environmental weed has no legal requirement but still has impact on the natural environment.

If you are a new property owner on the North Coast, please make yourself familiar with current weed legislation as this legislation can apply to you living and working on the land.

If you have found a weed on your property and don’t know what it is, please bring a good sample (preferably intact with any seed or berry) into the Coffs Harbour Regional Landcare Office, our staff will be happy to help you identify it and tell you about control measures.

We have also provided some useful resources to help you with a variety of weeds.
