at Kuitpo Forest

On the way back to Victor Harbor from Mt Barker this afternoon Ari and I had a walk around the Kuitpo Forest on the Brookman Rd in-between Meadows and Willunga Hill. I’d noticed a strand of native eucalyptus forest in small areas within the designated forest of pinus radiata on my way to Mt Barker early this morning:

I’ve tended to drive past this pine forests as I see them as dead zones for native flora and fauna. No vegetation grows underneath them. This eucalypt strand caught my eye and I looked more closely as I drive past for a way to enter into the small area of native eucalyptus. I saw Chookarloo, the main camping area at Kuitpo. This is what we walked around it on our way back
