Curtain Fig National Park, Yungaburra

See one of the largest and oldest trees in Queensland at Curtain Fig National Park, the region’s best known tourist attraction. This tree belongs to the strangler fig species, which normally germinate on top of another tree and eventually "strangle" the host tree. This unusual tree, however, tilted toward the host tree, with roots hanging down and to create enormous curtains. These aerial roots drop 15 meters (49 ft) to the ground, allowing the fig to feed directly from the soil. A wooden boardwalk around the tree allows visitors to see and photograph this 500-year-old giant from all sides.

  • There is a view in the tribe of Taiwan's Taiwanese people that the tree that is walking is because beard root hangs down to the ground and grows a tree, the longer the tree grows, the more it seems to have gone before, without expecting to see the same situation in Australia, where the beard roots grow more and more the same as the tribes of Taiwan. This discovery of Australia's natural environment and Taiwan's similar, one in the northern hemisphere, there is a lot of similarities in the southern hemisphere, the creators are actually wonderful.
