Author's notes

I think this is a srtand of Rough Tree Fern (Cyathea australis) along the access track to Moon Bay.

A close-up of the leaf bases would have been good, but I think you are almost certainly right. Dicksonia tends to have thicker trunks and Cyathea leichhardtiana much thinner ones.

Thanks, Jackie. I'll try to remember the base int he photos I take.
