Wow, what a tree!

The fig tree of Moreton Bay is huge and the biggest tree trunk I have ever seen. We took the trolley tour and the view of the tree and city is fabulous.

You definitely don't see such awesome trees everyday. You can drive by, stop for taking pictures and move on. It won't take you long, but worth to see

This is a very impressive old fig tree and definitely worth a quick visit. It's a very short walk from State street and parking is plentiful. Bring your camera!

Although you may be able to enjoy some shade, you can't get too close to the tree itself. It's got the area around it chained off.

This is a must see to believe. This tree will astound you. The size alone is breathtaking. Make sure you hear the story behind the planting of the tree.

After visiting the Reagan Ranch Center, cross the parking lot to have a look at this historical tree. You will not find many to compare. Grand and graceful branches provide tons of shade. It is roped off now for preservation, but you can still walk around under its sprawling branches.
