"Camshootu3asa" is the blog of Campbelltown SA University of the Third Age (U3A) Photoshoot Group.
Each month, during term time, we meet at an agreed location to spend an hour or so taking photographs followed by morning coffee at a nearby coffee shop. Members of the group are encouraged, but not obliged, to post a selection of their "shots" on the blog each month.

Some ancient things in Morialta - Vale

Much of the flora you see in Morialta Park is very old. The native grass-trees or xanthorea grow very slowly and were possibly here before Captain Cook discovered Australia. The cliffs of the falls are also ancient. We are lucky to have this largely in tact area of bush on our doorstep.

 Right is an example of a very old grass tree
This eucalyptus is no youngster either!!
