Industry Association members

This page lists the Industry Associations that are members of WildFlowers Australia Ltd.

These associations are mostly regional in focus and conduct a range of activities for their members. These events are a great opportunity for growers and allied industry members to meet, learn new things, solve problems and establish contacts. Attending a meeting can provide new and potential growers with more information about the commercial wildflower industry.

Wildflower Industry Network NSW Inc

The Wildflower Industry Network NSW Inc. (WIN) aims to grow and promote the Wildflower Industry in NSW, which is based on Australian native flowers and foliage, as well as selections from South African Proteaceae. It supports the interests of commercial growers and others with a commercial interest in wildflowers throughout NSW by fostering exchange of commercial and technical information;  initiating technical research and supporting collective action on industry issues. WIN has 2 active groups, one incorporating the greater Sydney area (including the Central Coast, Blue Mountains and extending to the South Coast) and one located on the NSW mid north coast.

It evolved from the Waratah Industry Network which commenced in 1994 and undertook a number of projects to enhance grower understanding of waratahs, to promote the waratah as a cut flower and to liaise with NPWS over grower concerns relating to tagging and grower registration.

With many changes in the wildflower industry in NSW over the past decade and the demise of the former State organisation, the Waratah Industry Network evolved to represent the interests of all NSW wildflower growers. The Wildflower Industry Network NSW Inc. came into being in June 2011.
