Planting Guides

Because Australia is such a big country, climates vary considerably. Planting a crop in Queensland might not work in Tasmania, so we recommend you use these planting guides to help you plant for each season. Choose the climate below which best matches where you live.

Join our newsletter and we’ll send you a link to download a FREE Start-up veggie Patch eBook, to help you on your journey.

Also register for our next FREE Organic Food Garden workshop, to help you learn the basics of what makes your food organic and how you can work with nature to keep your food clean and packed full of nutrients for your whole family.

If you haven’t already done so, and join our Facebook group – Our Food Garden. You’ll find lots of other parents on the same path to growing food with their kids.

Equatorial region stems from the tip of Cape York, Bathurst and Melville Islands north of Darwin. The tropical region spreads across Northern Australia including Cape York, the Top End of the Northern Territory, land south of the Gulf of Carpentaria, and the Kimberley region.

The Sub Tropical region spreads across the coastal and inland fringe from Cairns down the Queensland coast to the northern areas of New South Wales and the coastal fringe north of Perth to Geraldton in Western Australia.

The Temperate region occupies the coastal hinterland of New South Wales and Queensland, much of Victoria, Tasmania, the south-eastern corner of South Australia and the south-west of Western Australia.

Within the Temperate region, there is also what is referred to as the cool mountains. This includes high areas of south-eastern New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
