Weeds of South East QLD and Northern NSW App

This free mobile App provides an identification key to over 700 garden and environmental weeds and includes fact sheets, colour photographs and a glossary of commonly used botanical terms. Bundaberg Regional Council was one of five Councils that supported the development of this App and assisted in making this freely available to the community.

Weed Spotter App 

The free Weed Spotter mobile App, available from the Queensland Government Website, allows you to email photographs of plants to the Queensland Herbarium for identification. It has been developed to support the Weed Spotters Network, a joint project between the Queensland Herbarium, Biosecurity Queensland and local governments with funding support from the Land Protection Fund. There is also a handy User Guide available.
