I noticed to-day for the first time upon this expedition some of the desert oak trees (casuarina Decaisneana).
Their clubs are made of casuarina, and are powerful weapons.
Flooded-gum overhung the inner banks of the river, or grew upon the many islands, with casuarina.
The wood consists principally of the eucalyptus and casuarina.
Among the other trees on the island I noticed a casuarina and a Ficus.
The banksia, the casuarina, and the hardy xanthorrhoea reminded us of former toils on the opposite side of these ranges.
I looked into the casuarina thickets which occasionally fringed its bank, in search of water; but found none.
Hester stood a silent statuesque figure, watching her husband as he disappeared along the avenue of casuarina trees.
Here they were able to land and erect a tent, hidden from the sea by a grove of casuarina bushes.
It is a species of casuarina, of the same family but distinct from the beautiful desert oak.
