Monday 15th August 2016



Geoff has excelled himself in the orchid hunt; he is "THE MAN"!

I have counted up our finds for the day & I think we have seen 10 different flowering types of orchid & a further 4 types of orchid basal leaf, not flowering yet!

A foggy start in the Grampians this morning

But the flowers were still spottable!

Beehive Falls

Someone was after our lunch...
all they got were the crumbs from our laps

HUGE "drop-bears" in the Grampians!

Look at that nose!

Another "big" thing for Australia..
There are big fish, pineapples, bananas, rocking horses ...the list goes on!

Stately Helmet Orchid - Corybas (Corysanthes) diemenicus
Slaty Helmet Orchid - Corybas (Corysanthes) incurvus

Red Banded Greenhood


After nearly giving up looking on one track we managed to find heaps of orchids. I was happy to help.
