At Zanthorrea we specialise in Australian natives, which are among the world's most lovely and hardy plants. Visit our award winning nursery and choose from over 600 varieties of Australian plants. Zanthorrea is an accredited nursery, so our plants are guaranteed to be clean, healthy and 'hardened off' before you take them home.

COVID-19 Update

12th of June: We are open for business.
We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus situation, and following guidlines to keep our customers and staff safe. Our children's playground is open again, but for the moment we are still keeping our self serve coffee corner closed. Thanks for your understanding. We also ask that all customers exercise the 1.5m social distancing. At Zanthorrea we have a large area of open space to shop from, so there is plenty of room for all.

While our garden centre has plenty of room, our car park can get a little busy. There is also a gravel carpark with a separate enterance, and some space along the Watsonia Road verge. Thank you for being safe and patient while the carpark is busy.

19th of March: Hope everyone is safe and in the garden.

It is an unprecedented time of uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 virus. We hope you find some peace in your gardens and backyards as we get through these troubling times.

We are monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and following advice. Extra cleaning measures have been taken, and we believe our garden centre with its open air and plenty of space is still a low risk place to visit.

Our business like many others will remain open while the advisory bodies deem it safe to do so. We believe gardening has an important place to help relieve anxiety, and improve our health.

Please note: Due to the uncertainty, any future events have been postponed.

2nd of March: A Beautiful Start to Autumn

We have some fantastic weather to start off the autumn season. After all the storms last week there is some moisture once again in the soil, the sun is shining, and it is a perfect time to get out into the garden. March can still be a hot month though so it is important to keep an eye on the watering until we get into April.

Save the Date: On the 22nd of March we are hosting a Garden Releaf Day, and we hope you can make it. It is a fun day of talks, music, food and all for a good cause to raise money for Beyond Blue. More details to come soon.

Grevillea 'Outback Sunrise' is one of the new Grevilleas we have now at Zanthorrea.

After the previous warm week, you wouldn't have thought it good weather to be sitting on eggs, but we are pleased to say we now have a new baby chick at Zanthorrea. Hopefully a couple more hatch in the next few days!

19th of December: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We would like to thank all of our customers who have supported us throughout the year, and wish you a safe and enjoyable start into 2020.

It has been a hot start to summer with December hosting four days over 40 degrees! Some plants will need some extra attention when we have hot weather like this and others, once established will just keep on growing with no additional treatment or water. If you notice a plant struggling, it might benefit from some soil wetter or seasol solution. It is also a good time to top up mulch in the garden so as to reduce evaporation. We recommend a nice chucky bark mulch from a clean supply as this allows the water to penetrate through.

Hope you all find enjoyment in the long days of summer gardening!

15th October: Spring Wildflower Cheer!

It has been a great spring for wildflowers, but then it is hard to go wrong with WA's vast selection of flowering plants. There are plenty of nice Kangaroo Paws in flower, including the new Anigozanthos Kings Park Royale. It is not too late to plant up your bed with these for a lovely show of colour from now till Christmas time.

Christmas is not that far away, and if you are posting for family or friends overseas, then now is the time to start. We have a range of Australian themed gifts that are ideal for posting.

Opening Hours: 9am-5:30pm,
Every day except closed on Christmas Day.

What's Looking Good!


The Fan flowers are a great plant to grow through the warm summer months as they put on a terrific show of flowers. Either in hanging baskets, pots, or a well watered garden bed. Try: Scaevola Sitting Pretty, Scaevola Crinkle Cut or Scaevola Purple Fanfare.
