I envy you in being so close to that area. There was a dispute over the expansion of ruby mining at Barrington tops a couple of years ago. Do you know if those plans have been completely scrapped or is the mining company still trying to get approval?

thanks all for the support, i will post some pics when i go back to find them in flower.

Andrew, i was a bit confused when i heard about the ruby mine acouple of years ago as i thought they were garnetts up there??? but i dont think they have the go ahead yet and the area would be in the state forest side of the tops so most orchids should be safe. glad the pics were not to boring

settle down pictures of orchids are never boring

lets hope the mining company never gets the go ahead

good thing you don't have what we have in the state its call 'Gunns'
we have lost alot of our native orchids thanks to logging in the state at the moment the state forests are safe if Gunns build the new proposed pulp mill none of us know what will happen.
more native orchids will go wild native animals will go the trees will be gone and the tourist wont bother to come here anymore

sorry for rambling these native orchid should and need to be protected at all costs

One of the complaints I was hearing was the effect the mining operation would have on the water table which in turn would effect the wetland areas within the park

thanks Fred and andy, yeah not good news about logging... they do that n the state park around barrington as well, its never good. i was going to get a permit to go through all the areas that are going to be logged and mined and remove any orchid to a better home for consivation. but thats only a thought atm.

i was not sure where to post these pics eather so let me know if there is a better place in the forum, thanks Azz

Here here!

Fred what's going on in Tassie is ridiculous!

They used to do it up here a long time ago. Thankfully all the good timber is in World Heritage listed national parks and the state forests consist of planted pine trees. The logging tracks are now used as bushwalking tracks but there is still the old stumps of what would have been some pretty amazing trees as a reminder.

I can't believe Tassie's old growth forests with some of the oldest trees on earth are NOT world heritage listed and protected.

some of the old growth forest is heritage listed what we are all worried about is if they build this new pulp mill in Bell Bay they are talking about taking some of the old forest as well.

so really Gunns and Tasmanian State Forestry are working together
all because of the mighty dollar.

the forestry is meant to be working with the parks and wild life that if forestry find orchids in the wild forestry is meant to contact the parks and wild life and the parks and wild life will fence off a 30 meter square around the orchids to save them but with doing this means it upsets the workings of Gunns and Forestry
so sooner or later we will not have anymore native orchids in the wild for people to enjoy
nor will we have the native animals many people come to see.

the Tas Government needs to step up to the plate and save our state before its too late

sorry rambling again

I agree Jacqui two years ago I went for a drive to look at some native orchids in bloom and I had a ball
I never took my camera sadly anyway last summer I went to the same spot to see the chids in bloom and guess what there was nothing left except bare land

thats very sad fred, i know of sme orchids around here that are a bit to close to walking paths and camping zones. over the years i have seen them getting smaller and smaller and now alot are all taken. i feel like relocating them.

i think we all better go to tazzie and check it out before it is lost, didnt p.garrett say there will be no pulp mill in tazzie and then after elected he changed his mind and went with what the party wanted?

Garrett was against the pulp mill but he has different ideas now
so far the final plans have not been approved
most of the people in Tassie are against the pulp mill
we have two pulp mills here now I never paid much attention but when I started to look for sphagnum moss years ago I have seen with my own eyes the damage the loggers do
miles upon miles just nothing except dirt
the only way to save the native orchids is to halt the logging
will that happen, I don't think so, to many jobs will be lost so they say.
I have to ask what is more important the state's, Animals and Plants or a few job losses

the proposed new pulp mill will do more harm than good
