Coming Up

Due to the current COVID-19 situation all meetings and activities have been cancelled until further notice.


The Terrestrial Study Group meet once a month, usually on the third weekend following the monthly meeting.  Trips to search for orchids in the wild are organised within the state of Victoria and occasionally interstate. These expeditions may be for one day, a weekend or sometimes longer.

All members are welcome to join these trips.  Members get the opportunity to walk in the bush, see and photograph orchids in their natural environment, while enjoying the social companionship of fellow orchid lovers.

All orchid related activities and outings are dependent on the orchid flowering time, local events, seasonal conditions and in some cases the availability of a guide.

All field trips, particularly those held during Spring and Summer, will be subject to review dependent upon rainfall and fires etc.

Event details will be confirmed closer to the date so check this page and the current Bulletin to keep abreast of any updates as they become available.  All details regarding the event organiser, requirements, meeting places and times will be printed in the Bulletin in the month prior to the activity.

For further information contact the Terrestrial Study Group Coordinator.

As the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves the Committee is monitoring updated advice from the State and Federal Governments.

As a result of their Social Distancing Guide and our Members being in the high risk demographic we have a duty of care for their safety and wellbeing.

Therefore, the Committee has decided to cancel all meetings and group activities until further notice.

We will make decisions for each following month as the situation evolves.

Please stay safe.
