This tree is just one of many inspirations for the poetry of Magic Fish Dreaming. It is the ultimate faraway tree of Far North Queensland, although it is not one you are allowed to climb on – for that you have to find other trees (of which there are plenty that are almost as magical).

Stay tuned for more poetry inspirations. I look forward to seeing what magical illustrations Helene will do for the rest of the book. Can you imagine them too?
