As promised a quick tour through the scrub land of Aldinga. You walk out of the car and within 3 meters you are in the bush, another few meters and without a path you would have no idea where you were, just dense thicket and grasses. (Moral of the story is dont wander off the path)
As you see the soil, and I use that term loosely, is sandy in nature. It is really pleasant walking here during winter- no flies, really green and cool - without the hot sun pummeling down on you. The Australian sun in summer is scorching, dry and takes your breath away with is fierceness. Our bush is often scrappy looking and struggles to find its footing in the soil, so only the hardiest of plants survive and are drought tolerant.
