Michaela, these are not the tea-trees that are harvested for the medicinal oil, though they are of the same family of Malaleucas. This particular stand is one of only a tiny handful left: a small area of south east Queensland being the only place they are found.
Vimal, I’m kind of glad for a landscape without water, at present 😉
These are called tea-trees, I imagine, because they stain the nearby water something like the colour of tea when the leaves fall. Have a look at this picture;

all I’d need is some sacks of sugar and lots of firewood and I’d have free tea the whole year 😀
