Scammells Lookout

Royal Grevillea in bud

Royal Grevillea in flower

Scammells Lookout, on the Alpine Way, looks east up to Watsons Crags on the Main Range, Snowy Mountains (about 390km  southwest of Sydney). On a clear day the view would be magnificent. I was taken by the unusual tiny Royal Grevillea buds and flowers around the lookout.

The Alpine Way was a drive with beautiful scenery and many bends in the road. I had not seen roadside cuttings wired in this way before.  The netting was to hold back rock falls, the evidence of which we saw in many places along the road.

Thank you Deanne. I have long enjoyed taking photos. When I began my blog I didn't expect to share photos previously taken, however I am really delighted to be able to do so.

Hello Karen,
Are these lovely flowers growing in the wild? Fantastic. We don't know them over here.

Yes Marijke, they are growing in the wild, another unusual, yet beautiful, Australian native.
