Victorian Serrated Tussock Working PartyOur vision is to reduce the impact of serrated tussock on Victoria's economy, environment and communities
Identification of serrated tussock
Serrated tussock is a Weed of National Significance (WONS). It is regarded as one of the worst weeds in Australia because of its invasiveness, potential for spread, and economic and environmental impacts. It can spread rapidly, invading pastures, native grasslands and urban areas, and already covers more than a million hectares across New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and the ACT. Find out more.
The Victorian Serrated Tussock Working Party (VSTWP) began in 1995 in response to the community’s deep concern with the spread of serrated tussock, and a strategy for the control of serrated tussock in Victoria was produced.
The Victorian Serrated Tussock Working Party recently engaged ORIMA Research to conduct a Weed Hygiene Survey in April 2020, which received responses from 41 interested parties.
