Bottle trees


The streets of Mitchell are lined with Queensland Bottle Trees.  Out here in Western Queensland is their native habitat though they will grow in other climates.  It's the first time I've seen them on their home turf.

  1. Are they a type of boab/baobab?

  2. Fantastic trees! There is indeed a great resemblance with the African baobab, so I've checked and both belong to the same family.
