As we posted a couple of months ago, echidnas are rarely seen and can be mistaken by bushes etc… When we were driving up North, we were so excited to spot yet another echidna! This particular “echidna” was lying very quietly next to the road. First, we thought it was asleep or even worse: dead. However, as we approached it, we learned why it was lying that still: it was a dead Banksia-flower…

But we do love these Luffa-like trees!

Fun Banksiafact: the indigenous people have been using these Banksias for all kinds of stuff, such as brushing their hair!
