ONE OF THE WORLD'S RAREST PLANTS -"WOLLEMI PINE"
The Wollemi Pine is one of the WORLD'S OLDEST & RAREST PLANTS, dating back to the time of the Dinosaurs.
With less than 100 adult trees known to exist in the wild, the Wollemi Pine is now the focus of extensive research to safeguard its survival.
It was discovered just 10 years ago by a bushwalker in a national park only 200km from Sydney, Australia's biggest city.
A majestic conifer with attractive, unusual dark green foliage and bubbly bark, the Wollemi Pine can grow up to 40 metres high in the wild with a trunk diameter of over one metre.
The Pines can survive temperatures from -5 to 45°C, and are expected to withstand even cooler temperatures.
Located, in a cage for its own protection, the Wollemi Pine is located near the side facing Lindsay street, in Queen's Park.
There is a plaque by the tree, with more information on it.
