White Mangroves

At Wilsons Prom a path meanders between big old banksia trees to Millers Landing on Corner Inlet.

This beach faces north so we didn't see the big waves that had been coming in to the beaches on the west coast. Here we found the White Mangroves, the most southerly population of this species in the world. In Victoria the mangroves are quite stunted, and at Millers Landing they looked spectacular because of the surrounding sculptural granite rocks.

Hi - Enjoyed looking through your blog. Interesting to think there are mangroves at Wilsons Prom' and yet none at all on the north coast of Tassie.
