Flowers of the Lacebark Kurrajong Highfields

These beautiful pink flowers are from the Lacebark Tree (Brachychiton discolor) (Aka Pink Flame Tree)  which is in thw Kurrajoing family.  The large bell shaped flowers form in clusters at the end of the branches of the tree and are then followed by large seed pods. Today when I photographed these flowers, the tree only had a few flowers left on it, with many already fallen to the ground.

This particular tree can be found at the Community Court Entrance of Charles and Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve at Highfields, on the left hand side of the nature trail just after the reserve sign.
