Illawarra Flame Tree

A view from the Awaba House Cafe

Awaba House, a cafe and art gallery on Lake Macquarie, is surrounded by a lovely garden and sculpture park.  I couldn’t resist photographing these appealing flowers on an Illawarra Flame tree.  This is one of the most spectacular Australian native trees, and brings back memories of school playgrounds in summer. We used to collect Illawarra flame tree flowers and put them on the tips of our fingers.
