If you ever have the opportunity to visit Fraser Island, our World Heritage listed and the world's largest sand island, go for it. I'm positive you won't regret it. I would love to read your comment.

  2. Lovely--- Any one of these would have made a wonderful blog shot. By the way, in answer to your question: A State Park about 10 miles from where we live.

  5. Such fascinating and beautiful plants! My favourite photo is perhaps the third one.
    Do you know what plants there are in the amazing photo number 15?
    The beach photos are oh so wonderful... :)

    1. The spectacular staghorn fern is an epiphyte or ‘air plant’, which grows without soil. Native to Australian rainforests, the staghorn Platycerium superbum and closely related elkhorn Platycerium bifurcatum will grow just about anywhere in filtered light with protection from winds.
      The Staghorn in my photo is the higher plant on the tree. We are able to buy them in nurseries, but they must have a certificate to say they are legal and not just taken from the forest. The ones on this tree are huge. Most of the trees here, were just covered in them.
