The araucarias (notably the Bunya Bunya, the Hoop pine and the Norfolk Island pine) were favoured for their dark foliage and great height; some saw them as bizarre symbols of civilised dominance in the wilderness', (17) but emphasis was placed on the more cherished species from home.
We also noticed good specimens of Bunya Bunya, Cypresses, and Paulonia imperialis, the leaves of which measured some twenty inches across; taking into consideration the many specimens we saw of this plant, we confidently recommend it for general planting.
