Moreton Bay Fig

Here is a close-up of the figs forming on the Moreton Bay fig tree, which is common throughout the eastern states of Australia. This tree was one of many in the town of Mintaro (referred to in posts of last week) and behind the tree you can see the wall built from local slate.
Perhaps the most notable feature of the Moreton Bays are the extraordinary aboveground roots

I have never noticed the fruit growing on these magnificent trees. Thanks for showing me.

Beautiful photos! I like the texture in the second one with the roots and the slate wall.

This must be a relatively young tree. Moreton Bay figs are amazing trees, especially their roots. I like the fence in the background too!
