Michael, this photo was taken along the Cascades Trail, and there were many of them there and I would have thought they'd have been reported before. My camera doesn't have GPS capability so I have pin pointed the location using Google Maps feature, so there is a chance I was inaccurate in my location.

D. antarctica grows up most of the moist gullies in Tidbinbilla, quite common. Also look for Blechnum patersonii and Asplenium bulbiferum, usually near flowing or splashing water, often under the D. antarctica
