Weeds and pests
Weeds and pests are found throughout Port Stephens. It is our responsibility to control priority weeds on Council owned and managed land and support our community to do the same through advice and information.
We provide assistance in identifying and controlling weeds and pests in Port Stephens.
Land owned or maintained by Council undergoes revegetation, rehabilitation and management. We look after this land to improve the environmental value of bush land or to minimise a biosecurity impact.
You are responsible for pests or weeds found on your property. On this page you'll find some legislative information that you are required to follow to manage pests and weeds.
