Australia has a large range of native Orchids. Their status ranges from common, rare, threatened, endangered and some are even very close to extinction. Due to the fragile existence of some of these species the exact locations unfortunately cannot be given. If you come across and add any pictures of endangered specimens please keep their exact location private. (The location of any endangered/threatened species discovered should be reported to The Department of Sustainability and Environment in your state) Please feel free to add any and all of your native orchid pictures so that we can build a database of what is out there before some of them disappear forever
