The photos of each plant displayed here have been taken by Point Lonsdale photographer, Robyn Curtis. Robyn has sought out each plant in the wild as part of a mammoth project to photograph every one of those grown in our Queenscliffe Indigenous Nursery.

The plants that appear here are only the first stage of the project, with many more photos to come as Robyn compiles the photographic collection. The Swan Bay Environment Association owes a great debt of gratitude to Robyn for her outstanding work.
