These are beautiful photos, Carole!
My favorites are the second one and the path leading to the ocean. I love seeing all the different plants and animals you have in Australia.

I think I may have only seen a banksia after it was finished blooming and dried up. They are pretty fabulous looking then too though! Do they come in different colors or always yellow? I was expecting red for some reason, but may have mixed up with another plant. Lovely as always!
