Archontophoenix cunninghamiana in Nightcap National Park

Recommended Posts

This impressive bangalow palm forest is at Terania Creek in NE NSW.  Also  a Calamus muelleri and Linospadix monostachya crept in - pretty cheeky.  Some nice Cyathea treeferns and strangler fig also.

They also grow near Sydney in isolated pockets but not impressively like this.

Nightcap is magnificent, but I did not take pictures as well as you have, when I was there.

And did you see the magnificent Platycerium superbums , around the parking area, high in the conifers.

When I was there I was so absorbed with so much other stuff going on, birds, reptiles, amphibians, Bandicoots, ferns, epiphytes etc. that I missed half of the palms, thanks for reminding me that I must go back.

Beautiful! Reminds me when I was in China and how they planted Archontophoenix everywhere in groves.
