After 140 million years of geographic isolation, unique flora and fauna evolved on the continent of Australia, adapted to survive in a harsh climate.   Visiting Australia is like venturing into another world.  My talk is based on my third trip last year in October and November.  My  photos highlight Australia’s natural beauty, native plants, birds, and marsupials in the wild taken during my travels through the Daintree Rain Forest, botanical gardens, and the cities of Melbourne and Sydney and surrounding countryside.   I will also be featuring selected homes and gardens I visited during a two week tour I took with the Northwest Horticultural Society.
