These pages are about what lives on our place. We are trying to restore our bit of the Standing Brush as the really dense rainforest found in our valley was known by early settlers. Our place is down there in the mist, we call it Sassafras, in June 2010 it was proclaimed as the Sassafras Wildlife Refuge.

My aim over time is to record those plants and animals that live on Sassafras at various stages of their life cycles, to show similarities and differences and anything else I might like to write about them. For now most of the photos are of plants (they don't run away), go to the PLANTS table and look for the links for each species (currently 219 species but it will grow), however since late 2013 I have started putting all new photographs and many older photos on The Atlas of Living Australia, you can find all my photographic entries to date at   Look at the links above to see the total lists of what lives here so far.  Over time I will update the relevent tables with links to ALA images or I might continue making pages but with all photos on the ALA site.

Sassafras is nestled in this valley, Mooral Creek,  below the Comboyne Plateau on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales.

The morning after a decent bit of rain though we do get mist most mornings.

The one building you can see is the Mooral Creek Hall.

Our home is down there in the mist along with the rest of Mooral Creek.

It's the kind of place where 3 cars in 10 minutes is peak hour.
