Planting Australian native plants can have a huge impact on the amount of native wildlife attracted to that area. In fact, one study showed that suburbs with more than 30% native street trees had 11% more bird species compared to other suburbs.
Also, Eastern Spinebills, Eastern Yellow Robins and Superb Fairy Wrens are most likely to frequent gardens composed of at least 50% Australian native plants.
Planting Australian native plants tends to be cheaper than planting other non-native varieties and selecting local varieties adapted specifically to those conditions can help reduce water needs.
One other benefit to planting Australian natives is that they are generally easy grow and require minimal maintenance.
