A look at some of the spectacular Australian native epiphytic orchids, through the lens of amateur orchid-hunter Craig Allen.
Also contains information on where best to find native orchids, and their flowering seasons.
Travel is a great passion - so too is photography. I'll take every chance my wife allows to get out in the bush and explore parts well off the beaten path. I love the Australian bush, particularly its rainforests. At home I grow orchids and small children (so far the collection extends to two children, and about 200 orchids). My all-time favourite destination is Nepal, where I've trekked to Mt Everest several times (and planning several more trips in years to come). Vanuatu comes second - for its beautiful scenery, superb underwater life, and its friendly people.
