Management weeds after bushfires

Local Land Services has produced a Working Together video series on managing weeds after bushfires.

Bega Valley Shire Council participated in the production and our video focusses on the challenges around weed management following the Black Summer bushfires.

“It doesn’t matter if you’ve got one acre or 10,000 acres, if a weed goes over the fence, it’s everyone’s problem.”


With the commencement of the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015 and Biosecurity Regulations 2017 on 1 July 2017 the Noxious Weeds Act 1993 was repealed. This legislative change has meant that the weed management information on Council's web pages requires significant review.

Community information sessions regarding the new Act and what it means for everyone are being developed and will be presented to interested groups on request. If you are interested in these presentations please contact Council's Biosecurity Officers on 6499 2222.

In the interim if you have any questions regarding weed management and control and the new Biosecurity Act 2015 please contact the Biosecurity Invasive Species Team on phone 6499 2222.
