Border Boronia

Boronia repanda

High on a north-facing ridge, tucked between Stanthorpe and the Broadwater State Forest in southern Queensland, a small group of remarkable people are pouring over a tiny pink flower. The flower, is Boronia repanda, otherwise known as the Border Boronia, or even more amiably, the Granite Rose. The people are Liz Bourne, Peter Pemberton and Associate Professor Don Sands. The team are working on some of our state’s rarest plants, including many species of boronias, and their passion has led to some remarkable discoveries, here in Queensland’s stunning Granite Belt!


Classroom Resource Pack

Welcome to our Learning Resources Pack, an essential tool for educators and students eager to explore the threatened species that call Australia home. Australia is home to a remarkable array of flora and fauna found nowhere else on Earth, but many of these species are under threat from habitat loss, climate change, and other human-related factors. This resource pack is designed to inspire a deep connection with Australia's remarkable biodiversity, instil a sense of stewardship, and empower the next generation to take action in preserving these incredible species. Let's embark on this educational journey together, as we work to safeguard Australia's unique and threatened species for the benefit of both the natural world and future generations.
