Australian Native Plants for Coastal Plantings
Here are two short lists of Australian Native plants suitable for coastal planting.
It would be best if you consulted a local native plant nursery catalogue to check on heights and drainage/soil requirements. For example, in our 320 mm rainfall some of these would be quite reasonable for a suburban backyard. However the same tree in an area of 600 mm rainfall could grow to be far too big for the same size yard. The ultimate height and spread of the tree needs to be carefully considered. It is an expensive exercise to cut down a mature tree and a great shame to do so considering the time taken to reach that height.
