This provides the lunchtime shade near the food hub.
Everywhere are these fever trees and two huge ones greet you as you enter the main car park. The inevitable stralitzias and giant stralitzias,so much part of this area:
and then there are precious cycads just casually posing here and there.
this building has been built around the tree.
And then there are strange statues like this one
