Australian Flora part 3

This flower is wattle. (I think there are several varieties of this one too...) If you ever wondered why in the olympics and other national sporting events the Australians wear green & yellow - this is why! Their flag is red white and blue like a ton of other nations, so when you think about it, it makes sense!

Hi Amy --

wattle = acacia; we have a few varieties in California but the Aussies have lots! I'm enjoying all your photos, since I never made it as far north as Brisbane, let alone Cairns when I visited down under.
