Victorian Serrated Tussock Working Party

Our 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.

Update: Changes due to the Corona Virus. 

The VSTWP will not be attending field days and events over the next few months, to prevent the further spread of this deadly virus. Instead, we will be focusing on media articles, videos, social media updates, factsheets and case studies to engage with our audiences and stakeholders. 

Please let us know if we can assist you during this time. You are always welcome to send us images of infestations for online identification, to info@serratedtussock.com
