Information

This is post number 5 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 posts 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 Tress 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.

Post 5: The dominant shrub here is the pretty desert heath myrtle (Alute maisonneuvii). If you're lucky, it will be flowering.
