*Dikinsonia* tree ferns???
Isn't that a member of the Ediacaran biota? or is there a tree fern named that
Quite a long way from the mesozoic there....
I'd agree with Brian's comments about the Otways - they're magnificent.
The Bunya Pine stands in S Qld are incredible. Haven't seen the other
localities, though, but I'm sure they're pretty good. Given that much of
the Australian flora looks so wierd to N. Hemipshere eyes, you could
probably film in a lot of places on the continent and create a
convincing dinosaur scene.
