North Queensland Plants

Welcome to these pictures of Australian plants. Our main interests are parasitic and carnivorous plants and there are many Australian species featured.

As we live in Cairns, North Queensland, the site concentrayes on North Queensland plants but  there are pictures from all over Australia. We also spend alot of time looking at alpine and desert plants. The pictures are subject to the image use policy below.  All the photos are of plants in the wild and untouched photos are used and locations given wherever  possible.The datum for the GPS is WGS84. We  spend a lot of time in the bush identifying and photographing plants  in their natural habitat. All North Queensland plants featured are from the botanical districts of Burke QBU, Kennedy North QKN  and Cook QCO.High resolution photos are available on request.

All plants have been identified using references cited on the pages. Plant names are consistent with the Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) and locations are checked against the Atlas of Living Australia.  We welcome comment on the site and have many other photos of plants which are not yet on the site.The site currently features about 700 different Australian plants.

There is a page with a list of the plants collected by  Banks and Solander on the Endeavour with Captain Cook at Cooktown in 1770 with links to  plants featured on the site.

All references are regularly  checked and updated.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have followed a link from another site to an Australian Parasitic Plant species, you will need to navigate from this page via the Australian Parasitic Plants link to the relevant species page.The directory structure for the Australian Parasitic Plants section has had to be rebuilt and  links from external sites may be affected.
