The aftermath of the bushfires from last year. Gum trees are well adapted with a variety of coping mechanisms. Mountain ash trees die but the fire helps germinate their seeds, other gums just sprout new growth from the trunk and yet other species sprout again from underground roots called lingotubers.
Mt Buffalo. If mountains can have X factor, this mountain has it in spades. It started forming over 500 million years ago and is now only one third its original height. The views from the top are breathtaking and is like no place you have ever seen.
