A plant for every purpose, a champion for every plant

Nindethana Nursery was established by George William Francis Althofer (1903-1993) at his home in the Burrill Valley, Dripstone New South Wales, in 1932. Nindethana means ‘ours’ referring to the origins of the Australian native plants the nursery cultivated. The name was chosen to ‘reign amongst’1 the neighbouring townships of Burrendong, Wuuluman, and Morungulan.  Althofer was a botanist, nurseryman, author, poet, and champion for the preservation of Australian flora.
