Invasive plants cost Queensland an estimated $600 million annually and have significant impacts on primary industries, natural ecosystems, human and animal health. 

Council has strategies for preventing the introduction, eradication and containment of locally declared and invasive plants in the Rockhampton Region. Management strategies for the most common invasive plants can be found in the Rockhampton Regional Council Biosecurity Plan 2022-2026(PDF, 4MB).
