Along the way to the tip, anyone we met travelling in the opposite direction told me "Punsand Bay. Stay at Punsand Bay". So I headed for Punsand. It turned out to be a really nice place to spend a few days and see some of the local attractions. Of course, a visit to the 'tip' was mandatory.
One peculiar epiphytic plant growing in wet sclerophyll forest which I saw from Iron Range north is this one - the Ant Plant. I've seen it previously in Papua New Guinea. The bulbous base is a honeycombed structure, providing a home for ants which presumably protect the plant from insect predators or some such. I've also heard that there's a type of butterfly which lays its eggs on this plant, and the caterpillars are tended by the ants.
