It now has a general biosecurity NSW. I have updated it to Noxious Pest. http://weeds.dpi.nsw.gov.au/Weeds/Details/76

I don't know if you'd call this a naturalised population as it is in a suburban house yard. However, it is nicely demonstrating that the stuff can survive well in a location with some winter frosts. Friends who live nearby have had some frost sensitive garden plants killed or severely knocked back by frost, but the kudzu seems to hang in from year to year. It has been in this yard for many years, but is currently at the most extensive I have seen it, completely enveloping an old shed and climbing right to the top of a couple of tallish trees. I don't know if it ever produces seed. Our previous batch of photos from 2007 don't include any shots of pods. It was covering much less of the shed in 2007! I see from your link Betty, that there is nothing on the DPI website to say it has to be eradicated in southern NSW. Perhaps they don't expect it to be here.
