On Monday morning, very early, I made the hike up the Face Track to the top of the Mt Roland plateau. I had been planning to do it on Sunday however the pouring early morning rain suggested it may not be the best time to do it.
A couple of recent hikes to Mt Claude had shown me the wildflowers were looking pretty good and I was hoping to find some scoparia...described here...
The Tasmanian wilderness is the only place in the world you'll find the ferociously prickly plant known as scoparia (Richea scoparia). It forms dense thickets that few bushwalkers would want to be flung into.
I wasn't disappointed!
