Discovery : Thousand Year Old Boab Tree (along Champagne Springs Trail)
Discovery (Post#44) : Thousand Year Old Boab Tree (along Champagne Springs Trail)
Our main target to reach while taking Champagne Springs Trail was Adansonia gregorii or commonly know as Boab Tree which can be found in Kimberley Region in Western Australia and eastern part of Northern Territory. The amazing thing about this kind of tree is having the broad bottle-shaped trunk where it was said that its trunk base can be really large which by the record can go over 5 meters. In my opinion, the more the base trunk is larger, the more it was fascinating. The Boab Tree we reached is said to be a thousand-year old tree which awesome as this trees tested through times and yet still alive in our time.
