Tree fern, Grand Canyon, Blue Mountains National Park, New South Wales, Australia.
A tree fern thrives in the Grand Canyon of Blue Mountains National Park, a deeply incised sandstone plateau (with basalt outcrops on the higher ridges) in the Great Dividing Range, 81 km west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The highest point in the park is Mount Werong (1215 m), and the low point is on the Nepean River (20 m) as it leaves the park. The plateau provided refuge from climatic changes during recent geologic history and enabled survival of a rich diversity of plant and animal life. The Greater Blue Mountains Area was honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
