The Golden orchid is found growing along Queensland’s coastline from Gladstone to Cape York and up into the Torres Strait Islands. Also known as The Mangrove Orchid.
Tropical coastlines and mangrove forests, often as an epiphyte. These were growing on what appeared to be a volcanic rock cliff rising about the coral sea.
On Snapper Island, which is just off the cost of far north Queensland. This Island is Aboriginal land and only a few people can visit (by kayak) by permit at a time. Spent two days there as one of a total of five people. Coral reef comes right up to the beach.
