Blue Rock Dam, Willow Grove

19 September 2006

Today was spent driving two hours to Willow Grove (in Gippsland) and looking for orchids around Blue Rock Dam (and then driving home again).

We only found a few orchids in flower and a few leaves, and most of the species grow more abundantly closer to home. The only new one for me was the helmet orchid Corybas diemenicus, but I'm not sure it was worth the trip for one orchid.
