Banksia cuneata (or Matchstick Banksia) is a declared rare and priority species. Quairading is one of only three shires where Banksia cuneata still grows. There were six healthy specimens, despite the drought conditions in Cuneata Park, a 1-hectare reserve in the townsite of Quairading. The project aimed to not only increase awareness of native species and their benefits through creating water-efficient gardens but also to achieve aesthetic value to the town and endorse the importance of water use efficiency throughout the community.
