A Couple of Fig Trees

Two of the most impressive sites we visited whilst in the Atherton Tablelands were home to two fig trees. The Cathedral and Curtain Figs looked like something from another world. The first seven photographs in this post show the Cathedral Fig. Overtime the Cathedral Fig had strangled its host tree, which had since decayed away completely, leaving a hollow shell and earning it its name. The Curtain Fig’s host tree was still hanging on but was entirely hidden by the curtain of roots that the fig had sent down.
