The Palms National Park, QLD, Australia

Here a few photos taken at The Palms NP. It is located near Cooyar, QLD, about 200 km North-west of Brisbane. Small in size, it protects a remnant stand of piccabeen palms growing in a permanent soak in a gully fed by a number of natural springs in subtropical rainforest conditions, about 200 km from the coast.
