Location: Carnarvon Gorge, Central Qld
Late afternoon and these Red-Winged Parrots were in to feed on the Macrozamia fruits. The outer coral-coloured flesh is palatable to parrots, kangaroo and wallabies too.
The large seed inside is quite toxic though. Isn't nature amazing? Animals and birds eat the flesh, and leave the seed to regenerate over time.
Thirty Wilderness Lodges were nicely spaced for privacy. There is an abundance of the natural growing Macrozamias wherever you walk.
