Gum Trees – Australia’s fragrant national icon

As a nature photographer it is impossible not to develop a strong relationship with Australia’s eucalypts, they are after all the most dominant tree species on our landscape.  In pursuit of wildlife my quarry often have strong associations with these sometimes towering trees.  Tree mammals and birds in particular set up home in their hollows […]

Conservation, but I’m only one person!

Late in 2007, I was invited to join a group of deeply concerned nature photographers to protest old-growth forest tree-felling in the Upper Florentine Valley in Tasmania’s south-west. We wanted to raise public awareness of what was going to happen to this wonderful old-growth forest beside the World-Heritage-listed Southwest National Park. We had some competition, […]

Australian Forests – an introduction

“Some places, where the trees are fewer and at a lower altitude, the timber is much larger in diameter, averaging from  6–10 feet [2–3 metres] and frequently trees to 15 feet [4.5 metres] in diameter are met with on alluvial flats near the river.

The total area of the continental shelf around our continent, as defined by the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, is 14.8 million square kilometres. […]

Blue Mountains National Park

A natural process by which eucalypt oil vapour refracts sunlight (and drenches the surrounding atmosphere in ethereal blue) has helped give the Blue Mountains it name. This vast sandstone plateau, rising 1300 m above sea level, is populated by some of the world’s rarest plant and animal species, including the Wollemi Pine — a prehistoric […]
