Nielsen's Native Nursery

Nielsen's Nursery is great place to shop for Australian native plants: eucalypts, leptospermums, callistemons, banksias, grevilleas, rainforest plants... In addition to the extensive range of Australian plants, they have an impressive array of exotic plants, fruit trees, herbs, flowers, water plants, pots, garden ornaments, water features, a beautiful aquarium and a nice cafe with a view to the plants and the pond. The Nielsen's staff is knowledgeable and helpful, and the nursery is doing a good job of promoting the use of Australian native plants in South East Queensland gardens. The nursery's car park is adorned with native plants and is a great place to see what the plants will look like when grown.

Nielsen's is always a joy to visit. Wide range of plants, friendly staff, and a nice cafe on site.

Thank you for this well illustrated review. It prompted me to visit Nielsen's and I am very glad I did. They have a huge range of plants, and I have found one I'd been looking for for a long time.

I love the selection of Australia native trees and shrubs at Nielsen's. Some years ago I realised that growing natives in my yard means a much more resilient, water-wise and self-caring garden. Most non-native plants are just not well adapted to Australian conditions.

One of my favourite nurseries. I am a big collector of shade-loving and water plants. And Nielsen's have a good display of both.
