Wordless Wednesday - Hoya australis subsp. australis in Situ | 9/01/13

Hey Everyone,
I saw this Hoya australis subsp. australis in the Lamington Nation Park yesterday.  It covered about 10 metres squared, and was located on the side of a VERY high cliff, hence the lack of a close up photo.  As much as I love plants, I don't love them enough to risk a roughly 100m drop off a cliff just to get a better photo.

The plant was growing on that lower ledge you can see in the background.

As usual I am joining Tina for Wordless Wednesday.

Happy Gardening Everyone,


  1. Didn't realize there are people out there who risk their lives to photograph plants! Whew. Very cool. But stay safe.

    Here's my Wordless Wednesday: Satsumas. I hope you will stop by! And Happy New Year!

    1. Hi Deb,
      Yes sadly some people do risk their lives for photos, but I am definitely NOT one of them. I very carefully crawled up to the edge on my stomach to take the photo. You should pop by again soon because I'll be doing a post about my whole trip, in which there'll be a photo of the view from this particular lookout and then you can truly get a sense of just how high it was

    1. Woohoo!
      I'll make sure I include the photo just for you :)

  3. Beautiful plant the Hoya but not to risk your life for! We have them over here as house plants.

  5. Hey Michael, great shot. I like to go a little out of my way to get a good shot. A few weeks ago We went out on the reef at Cronulla to try and get a shot of the seaweed swaying back and forth. But I'm not to keen on falling down cliffs.
    Best Wishes


Hi, I'd love it if you'd make a comment. I enjoy hearing what you think and all comments are read, and replied to, to the best of my ability at the time.

Happy Gardening :)
