Winter 2014, Sawtell, NSW
The seaside town of Sawtell, NSW is situated between two small creeks just south of Coffs Harbour. In the 1940’s the locals planted Moreton Bay Fig trees down the centre of the wide main street in a desperate effort to stop the sand dunes from encroaching on the town. Their hard work paid off and now the town is beautifully shaded by these enormous trees.

Those fig trees are quite something aren’t they? We saw some recently on our visit to Cádiz. Extraordinary beasts!
They remind me of the childhood book The Magic Faraway Tree.
