Getting amongst the Melaleuca at the Slade Point Nature Reserve

Did you know that 'melaleuca' is Greek for black/white and refers to the colours of the trees after they've been affected by fire? If you've looked out the window when driving around Mackay you'd probably know that this species of tree is very special to this area and particularly likes the low lying swampy parts.

We had a great day out on September 28th visiting the melaleuca forests - and other vegetation types - in the Slade Point Nature Reserve.
