Australian Wildflowers - Brisbane Area August 2018

In August of 2018, my husband, son, daughter-in-law, and 6-1/2 year old granddaughter went to Brisbane, Australia for 2 weeks. Although it was mid-winter then, I still documented 135 different species of wildflowers.

I had a book of wildflowers of the Sydney area before we went on the trip. The Banksias were one of the flowers I hoped to see when we went to Brisbane. I was excited to see it hours after landing in Austraila!

It was quite a surprise to find these small carnivorous plants growing in a seep near the rocks on the beach at Noosa Heads National Park. The little tentacles have sweet nectar that attracts insects, when the insects land on the leaves they are trapped, the leaves curl up and digest the prey.
