Aussie grass trees...we used to called them "Blackboys" until political correctness kicked in.

They are wonderful plants in the Native bush, Martin, but look quite ok in this bed of grevillias.
Martin from Stone: Tanks for that info Ray, they did make an interesting feature in this section

Here is one, flowering, in an Australian forest... http://mainlythai.shutterchance.com/photos/1928/554841_large_8d84.jpg
Martin from Stone: Now that is impressive in the flowering state
I really like the little bits of color!
Martin from Stone: The display was well designed and looked even better from a distance

I found it really interesting to see these foreign plants under the biomes
Martin from Stone: Around the world in 30 minutes.(slight exaggeration)
a spiky looking affair, Martin.
Martin from Stone: Yes a most distinctive plant

I only visited here once Martin and was disappointed. One disappointment was to smell pies cooking as the air was pumped into the tropical zone.
Martin from Stone: The huge eatery next to this Biome was over dominant visually so if you got the smell as well then I can understand your feelings. We chose to eat by the entrance , a much smaller and quieter set up.

Lots of sand visible like in some parts of SA. The plants, however, must be Aussie as Ray indicated.
Martin from Stone: They are distinctive plants from down under.

Very pleasing, Martin
Martin from Stone: I enjoyed this Biome
I was wondering if it was the bottlebrush plant and Ray's photo shows that it is. I remember them from AU.
Martin from Stone: One place I have never visited
Most unusual plants aren't they.
Martin from Stone: They appear to be in two distinct parts with that unusual trunk.
