[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Wilson's Prom National Park is the southern-most part of mainland Australia.

It features hundreds of miles of walking tracks, providing magnificent coastal and land-based views at what seem to be every turn.

This fern was photographed in the area of the park called Lily Pilly Gully, where large tree ferns and other forms of vegetation can be found.

Hi Peter. I don't suppose you noticed which tree fern this was? If it had a big 'skirt' of dead hanging fronds it could be a Dicksonia, possibly fibrosa.... that is if it is one we have here in New Zealand.
Its got a lot of fronds crowded around the crown.... probably the most I've ever seen on a tree fern.
Good photo...but I'm dying to know more about it.
