On Friday, on our way home from Point Lookout, we took a detour up into the Cathedral Rock National Park.
It was wet, bitterly cold and threatening snow, so we didn't dare do the three hour walk up to Cathedral Rock itself. But a few things caught my eye.
Some of the granite boulders are worth a shot
The colour and texture of this fallen gum leaf, with red galls, against the granite and multicolour lichen.
Of course most Oz trees are evergreen Eucalyptus species so we expect green leaves in winter.
Finally, another fact of the Oz bush is while many flowers come out in spring, something is flowering pretty much all year, even in sub-alpine areas like Cathedral Rock.
So I was not surprised to see exquisite Banksia flowers.
