All the plants shown in this website grow on Magnetic Island,

8 kilometres (5 miles) offshore from Townsville in North Queensland, Australia.

 The island is in the dry tropics.

The average annual rainfall is about 1500 mm (58 inches), most of it falling in the "wet season" (December to March). The rest of the year is very dry.

The plants described here may be found in the bushland near one of the walking tracks,

or on one of the beaches,

or by the roadside,

or in the parks,

or in private gardens.
