Members are from all age groups and ways of life from amateurs who want to learn a bit more about Australian plants to professionals - from artists, florists, farmers and nurserymen to plant scientists: anyone who has an interest in Australian flora.
Many members enjoy Australian plants as garden subjects in the suburbs or the challenge of propagating and cultivating difficult to grow species or finding and propagating unusual forms of plants; many contribute to conservation, education, study of bushland or the awakening of a love of the Australian flora in others; others grow Australian plants commercially, many enjoy travel looking at Australian plants in their normal habitat, and photography. For many, membership of the Society is a way of meeting like minded people.
Members who have a professional interest in Australian plants can obtain information outside their specialised area. Some members who do not work with Australian plants for a living but have qualifications in botany, horticulture and so on, find satisfaction in using their knowledge in a leisure activity. For many members of the Society it is a relaxing and enjoyable activity and their first involvement with Australian plants. The Australian Plants Society also has among its members local government authorities, schools, other societies, libraries, corporations and government bodies.
