Restricted invasive plants

Everyone is obligated to take all reasonable and practical steps to minimise the risks associated with invasive plants under their control. This is called a general biosecurity obligation (GBO).

Restricted invasive plants are established in Queensland and seriously threaten Queensland's primary industries, natural environment, livestock, human health and people's livelihoods.

Many restricted invasive plants have related species that are classified as prohibited invasive plants. You should view both the prohibited and the restricted invasive plants pages to understand what your responsibilities are.

You can find detailed information on individual invasive plants below, and a summary of the restrictions and a list of restricted invasive plants in the Restricted invasive plants of Queensland fact sheet (PDF, 1MB).
