Australian Fan Palms

Licuala Ramsayi


These beautifully presented palms form a small unbroken section in the Daintree Rainforest in tropical North East Australia. It gets its name from its pleated leaf segments that combine to form a structure similar to a Chinese fan. Thanks to the knowledge of our guide we were able to find this section of rainforest populated only with these beautiful Fan Palms. The area is subjected to flooding in the wet season forming a marsh, swamp environment around the base of the palms.
