kinda old

These two bull kauris are found on the Lake Barrine circuit in the Atherton Tablelands of Queensland.

Estimated to be around 1000 years old, these trees provide valuable information about evolution, as their ancestors came from about 250 – 60 million years ago. Although they are on every continent except Antarctica, they have very specific requirements, surviving in altitudes between 600 and 1000 m with high rainfall and deep loam and clay soils. In Australia, they restricts them to a small region.

Worthy of Becky’s ‘kinda’ squares.
