The High Country

Recently Helen has been up in the High Country as we call it, Falls Creek is the area where Helen completed a 45kilometeter hike over 4 days and three nights camping at Johnston Hut, Edmonson Hut and Wallaces Hut. Helen says it was a real thrill for her to see so many different plants massed together.
Scaevela hookeri (creeping fan flower) were on Mt Nelse with Gentians and Celmisia.
Helen thinks January is a better time to visit Falls Creek as a lot of the Celmisia's had finished flowering by February but the Wahlenbergia may not have been in full flower.
