This fern was common in the Eungella N.P.
Thank you for the suggestion Yuko, as Argy Bee has said, it doesn't include my area. Argy thank you! Cool name too :)
It doesn't mind Melbourne's winter at all - it seems to just wait. I'm mostly surprised it survives me. Yuko's ID looks similar but if wiki is right the climate would preclude Mackay. Maybe look at Adiantum hispidulum - that grows wild in Qld.
*Western Maidenhair Fern. Sorry!
I forgot to attach this:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adiantum_al...
It looks like Western Maiden Fern, but I'm not sure if it grows in your part of the globe. :-)
How lovely! It must be quite hardy then to survive the cold down there. I haven't looked too hard for an ID yet, just want to get them all uploaded :)
My daughter gave me one of these in a pot years ago. I'm amazed how well it's doing if it's native to your part of the world. Sorry it doesn't have a name on it any more. They are very attractive en masse.
