Cyathea australis


The slow growing Rough (trunk) tree fern is very common in the damp temperate rainforests of Victoria. These are standing in front of the picturesque Stevenson's falls in Marysville.

Thanks for your comments. These ferns love the understorey of mountain ash (Eucalyptus regnans) that provide perfect shade and humidity. These falls were also completely blackened by fire. Mountain ash saplings (right) can be seen here in regrowth.
