Wishing all our friends, wherever you may be in the world, all the best for the festive season and beyond. Tree crafted by Alan (using fallen eucalypt branches) and decorated by Vicki. We like to be a bit different. Alan and Vicki xx
The park contains over 900 indigenous plant species. Twenty of these, including the Grampians Gum and Grampians Parrot-pea, are found nowhere else in the world. We were there at the right time as flowering was in full swing. I spent several hours wandering around in the bush to get these shots mostly on Asses Ears Road. Many of these flowers are on plants that are close to the ground and many of them have prickly leaves so I had to get down on the ground without crushing any orchids or other beauties to get these shots.
Burrong Falls are accessed along a gravel road deep in the middle of the Grampian Ranges. We were the only visitors, so this was a very peaceful spot to sit and take in the beauty of the place. There were many wildflowers out as well to further excite our senses. Post on the wildflowers to follow.
