The Old Tree Network


I took this picture while on holiday in Margaret River, Australia in October 2007. We kayaked up river from the mouth at the beach. Our first stop was this floating nearly 200-year-old island of tea trees, not far from the mouth. The island does not move away as the root system of the trees have anchored it quite well to the riverbed and bank. Walking on the ‘ground’ was like walking on a very damp mattress. The papery bark of the tea tree felt like thin kraft paper". Taken by Kisane

I'm thrilled to bits..many thanks. Margaret River is a place not to be missed, folks.

One correction to the info though: the trip was in November 2006. Sorry, didn't double check before I sent off the email.
