Pandanus trees in Burleigh Heads National Park

Pandanus is a slow growing tree perfectly suited to sandy soil and salt-laden winds.
The prop roots help support the top-heavy tree in sandy soil. The fruit looks like woody pineapples,which changes from green to bright orange or red as it matures, and are eaten by animals including bats, rats and some lizards. Only specialist birds can break in to the tough seed cases.


In 1973 an 'Aquarius' festival was held in Nimbin, attracting university students, hippies, party people and alternative lifestylers. After the festival hundreds decided to stay on, making legal history for the first ever application of group title ownership of land in Australia.
