Bamboo World was established in the mid-1990s by Victor Cusack who was passionate about bamboo and started a private collection. Victor traveled extensively throughout Asia and imported hundreds of bamboo plants into Australia.
His passion and collection quickly moved from a hobby into a business, supplying collectors and garden enthusiasts throughout Australia. In the late 1990’s Victor had a large input into the establishment and introduction of a commercial bamboo plantation for the production of edible shoots and timber. He was an expert in the field of Bamboo and went on to write the book “Bamboo Rediscovered”.
Today they have grown to become Australia’s top supplier of quality non-invasive clumping bamboo to garden centres, retail nurseries, landscapers, and the general public.
