Coolum Community Native Nursery grows plants native to the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. 

Set near the base of picturesque Mt. Coolum, our not-for-profit nursery specialises in local native plants including the salt tolerant species that are iconic to the Sunshine Coast.

Local native plants have evolved over millennia to become ideally suited to our windy, sandy and salty conditions. Local salt tolerant plants are ideal for this area as they generally require less water, fertiliser and maintenance than exotic plants, or places from other plants of Australia.  In addition they provide valuable food and habitat for local wildlife while maintaining the unique character of the Sunshine Coast.

We provide complimentary expert advice on how to take care of your new plants, what to plant where, and pitfalls to avoid.  Give us a phone call, an email, or drop in with any questions you have regarding local native plants. 

Our friendly staff are here to help!
