Flame Tree Challenge

There’s a burst of red as you travel down Wray Crescent.

The original Illawarra Flame Tree, outside Bendigo Bank, has a few flowers showing in between it’s leaves, however across the road ‘Flame Tree Jr’ is covered in red.

Quite a few photos have been popping up on Facebook of both Flame Trees, with people asking local photographer Greg Carrick to take more. So we’ve decided to start a photography challenge everyone can get involved in: taking photos of Mt Evelyn’s Flame Trees.

The challenge is open for the duration of January, you can take a photo of the Flame Trees and submit it to info@mtevelyn.net, with your name, or send them to the M.E. & You Facebook page and we’ll share them over social media and publish a gallery of them all.
