Here are just a few of the local plants, photographed around the Maddens Falls area.
|Myrtle wattle (Acacia myrtifolia)|
|Pine-leaved geebung (Persoonia pinifolia)|
Scribbly gum (Eucalyptus sclerophylla) and
Crimson bottle brush (Callistemon citrinus)
The landscape around Maddens Falls in the Dharawal is stunning, and the falls are easily accessible via a short walking path. It's not the sort of thing that could be recreated in a suburban garden (if only!), but it's worth visiting regularly to see how the plants change with the seasons.
