Hi Nick, some information for you from a south east Australian (mainly 
Victorian) perspective.

We are spoilt for choice in the south east with a plethora of field 
guides, detailed treatises, reference books and CD-ROM's on various native 
plant groups including the non-vascular plants (mosses, liverworts etc) 
and fungi.

Here's just a selection of the ones I use at work and in the field.  I 
have put an asterisk against the ones most of use to someone like 
yourself, they have great images and other information.

a. Vascular plants
Australian Nature Plants (various books) -

*Native trees and shrubs of se Australia -

*Wildflowers of Victoria and adjoining areas -

*Wild orchids of Victoria -

Flora of Victoria (a series of four massive reference books) -

A field guide to Victorian Wattles (Rogers 1993)(and other wattle books) -

b. Endemic Australian bryophytes -

c. Fungi
Various books but a good web site is as follows: Victorian fungi -

d. Databases of Victorian plants
Victorian Flora Information System (FIS) -

cheers, Martin
