Mackay Natural Environment Centre

The Mackay Natural Environment Centre (MNEC) nursery specialises in local Central Queensland provenance plants for rehabilitation, revegetation and water sensitive urban design projects from the rainforest to the coast.

The nursery propagates over 100,000 plants each year, follows Best Management Practice Guidelines and is accredited by the Nursery Industry Accreditation Scheme, Australia (NIASA).

The MNEC is run by a dedicated team of council staff and volunteers, growing a wide range of local native garden plants for Mackay Regional Council’s Free Native Plant Program and other projects across the region.
