Rainforest Regeneration Project:

rainforest regeneration planting

We have been busy planting rainforest trees on formerly cleared land on the property. Many of our friends participated in the planting. The pink tree guards prevent Wallabies and Pademelons eating the leaves while the trees are small.

Photo here taken in approximate location to photo above when the planting took place. Eighteen months and two wet seasons later has sure provided the right environment for our tree plantings. 420 trees were planted and we probably lost about 30 or so. Replacements and new plantings have extended the project. The trees are all endemic to the area and have been deliberately selected to attract birds and butterflies. We expect full canopy cover will come about in another two years.


Jade Vine Flower:

Orchids:

A good display of Dendrobium nobile, one of the many orchids growing on trees throughout the gardens .
