Arachnorchis lowanensis

Wimmera Spider



Traveling in the far west of Victoria, we spotted a Flora Reserve sign.  Shall we look, or go onto our real destination - no lets stop while we're here. After all we had found more orchids in reserves rather than National Parks on this trip.

Our group spread out to search and in a few minutes we had located this colony of orchids.   We realized it was new to us and we were happy campers!
