Litchfield's Wealth. Golden Grevillea, Grevillea pteridifolia, Litchfield National Park, Northern Territory, Australia
Litchfield National Park to the south southeast of Darwin about an hour and a half by bus was named for one of the early explorers of the Northern Territory, Indian-born Frederick Henry Litchfield (1832-1867). Something of an impoverished cast-about, Litchfield in 1864 found himself in the Northern Territory. Here he came into his own as an explorer. Litchfield had earlier tried his fortune as a gold digger in the Victorian Goldrush, and thus he was quick to recognize gold deposits at the Finnis River near what is today Litchfield National Park.. This news drew many immigrants to the North and thus Litchfield's find put down the foundations for the present-day Northern Territory and the city of Darwin. The wonderful park is thus fittingly named for him.
The Golden Greville is found all over northern Australia (especially Queensland and the Northern Territory), but at this time of the year it blossoms especially profusely in Litchfield National Park. Its vivid golden-orange draws anyone's eyes. Even more fascinating is that these flowers literally drip with nectar. You can just make out some sparkles. I didn't see the birds that favor this sweet, but my own hands were sticky from the drops.
To Joseph Banks (1743-1820), famous naturalist and philanthropist, goes credit for first collecting our Grevillea in April 1770 as a member of the team of scientists of Captain Cook's ship "The Endeavour" in Botany Bay. A second collection was made in June near Cooksville. It has also been known by the apt but botanically curious name 'Grevillea chrysodendron' ('Gold-Tree Grevillea').
Cape Tribulation Shoreline Taken from the from Rumrunner on a Day Trip to the Great Barrier Reef
When our friends from Calgary visited 2 years ago we went to the Great Barrier Reef on a smaller vessel, the Rumrunner. I have been to the Barrier Reef a lot of times but this trip was by far the very best one I have done on a tourist boat. Beside that, it was half the price
of the others and the service and value for money was double anything else. The Rumrunner departs
from the beach at Cape Tribulation and people are taken from the shore to the Rumrunner by a small transport boat.
In this photo the beach you see is the true Cape Tribulation beach. This is pristine Australia. Cape Tribulation is in the Daintree National Park and in my opinion is my favourite area so far in Australia. I still love Moorea and Maui but I can't live there because I am not the right nationalities.
The peak you see in the distance is Mt Sorrow, named by Captain James Cook, as was Cape Tribulation, for is was a bit offshore from here he holed his Endeavour on the Reef and had to limp into a river named today, the Endeavour River where Cooktown is.
The whole of the Cape Tribulation area is where they say, "The rainforest meets the sea." The photo was taken about 8 am I think it was.
