Our story

Since its inception over 20 years ago, Bili Nursery (formerly SKINC) has supplied the indigenous plants that have revegetated the Sandbelt area along the City of Port Phillip coastline.

Drawing on remnant vegetation from as far away as the Mornington Peninsula, the original team devised a species list of plants to put back into the surrounding area. Most of the parent stock was collected from these patches, and over the years, these plants have provided seed and propagation material for over 2 million plants.

These indigenous plants have been used extensively along the foreshore, re-creating frontal sand dune ecosystems and in reserves such as Canterbury Road urban forest, Lagoon reserve, Gill reserve, Turner reserve, Wattie Watson reserve, Point Ormond, Elwood Canal and in numerous local residents gardens.

With our amalgamation and a more functional nursery comes the opportunity for Bili Nursery to produce plants from further afield, including the western plains area and greater Melbourne for their inclusion in numerous other revegetation projects throughout Melbourne.
