|The start of the Donohue Highway, just 8k north of Boulia near where we'd camped on the riverbank|

|Rolling gibber plains, Donohue Highway.|
There is a real grandeur to the vastness of the land, and in years when the cyclonic rains wander

|Desert Bloodwood Eucalyptus (or Corymbia) terminalis and |
Spinifex Triodia spp. hummock grassland.

|Outliers of the Tarlton Range, Plenty Highway.|
|Ghost Gum Eucalyptus apparerinja, Plenty Highway.|
|Blue-leafed Mallee, or Warilu Eucalyptus gamophylla, Plenty Highway, above and below.|

|Solanum ellipticum, one of the 'bush tomatoes', and a close relative of 'real' tomatoes,|
potatoes, capsicums etc.
|Termite mounds, Plenty Highway.|
The Desert Bloodwood (above) and Mulga (below) are both full-sized small trees.
