The Cathedral Fig or Strangling Fig
Today, we are re-joining the Schaussengraben Road Show on the road to Cooktown in FNQ. That's local-speak for, wet and tropical Far North Queensland, - the land of "I never want to go home" !
"This huge 'Strangling Fig' was amazing, especially when it started with a seed the size of a sesame seed and now is about 500 years old. I also found that you have to watch out for those forest vines... one almost got me but I got away safely."
Perhaps we may soon see some of the browner and dryer bits of the Wide, Brown Land.
