Staff member at Crows Nest Community Nursery

The Crows Nest Community Nursery helps to support native wildlife by propagating indigenous trees, shrubs and ground cover plants that occur naturally within, and beyond, our regional boundaries. If you want to encourage birds, bees and butterflies to visit your garden, property or re-vegetation site, we have lots of plants for you to choose from to attract them. Our local native plants are essential for the survival and well-being of our native animals who rely on them for food and shelter.

Open hours

The Crows Nest Community Nursery is open each Thursday between 8.30am and 1pm with two open days also held each year - one in spring and the other in autumn. 

There are also two open days a year; one of the 1st Saturday in February and the second on the 1st Saturday in October from 8am - 2pm.


The nursery is located on Depot Road, Crows Nest. View Google map.

Volunteering opportunities

The nursery welcomes volunteers to join the team. Read more about volunteer opportunities here.

Each year there's a brief timeframe to collect seeds from the endangered Acacia harpophylla, commonly known as the Brigalow Tree. Fortunately, the tree exists in the Oakey area providing our nurseries with a unique opportunity to harvest its valuable seeds, which in turn will help boost plantings of this dwindling species.
