Information

This is post number 4 of the 7 posts installed by Friends of the Great Victoria Desert to the west of Voakes Hill Corner. Please take the time to stop at each of the seven numbered post and learn a little about the surrounding places and their regeneration following fires. You should be able to find six or more different plants within 10 metres of most posts. A book published in 2005 called Shrubs and Trees of the Great Victoria Desert, is a high quality vegetation field guide produced by the Friends of the Great Victoria Desert which describes most of them.

South-west of the post is a stately, single trunked tree like nothing else in the GVD. It's the desert kurrajong (Brachychiton gregorii), whose long tap-root seeks out the water. This is a a small tree of the genus Brachychiton found in northern and western Australia. It was originally classified in the family Sterculiaceae, which is now within Malvaceae.
