Yes, I have down south in Western Australia, and also in Queensland.

Can't remember where in Queensland however as it was a long time ago.

They are fascinating.

Finy, on the Atherton Tabeland, the 'Curtain Fig'.........
by donjo
Yep, there are a few large figs around Brisbane. I love the massive one at Circular Quay.
Aaaahhh, there's no Circular Quay in Brisbane! The one in Sydney doesn't have any trees!

You maybe meaning the MBF's at the junction of Elizabeth, Eagle, & Creek Streets, in Brisbane.
During 1974 Flood, instead of giving the height of the Brisbane River at the Port Office, it was announced ditto, at the 'Fig Trees', which gave a 'truer' indication to the citizens'.
by donjo
Yep, not the place name I was looking for, it's the one near Eagle st pier.
I have seen a huge amount of these wonderful Fig Trees in Queensland.The largest is the Curtain Fig up on the Atherton Tablelands,just outside of the delightful little township of Yungaburra! There are also many of these at Broadwater Park about 2 hours drive north(ish!) of Townsville. Nature is so amazingly diverse in this region and I am always seeing things which are almost beyond belief!
thank you Jules -I think that is where I saw it many years ago!
by Finy
You are very welcome! The Curtain Fig Tree is the very famous one and a lot of tourism has grown around it over the years I have wonderful photos of my son there when he was just a very small 4 years of age The tree made him appear somewhat like a little Christmas Elf!!! Too Cute! They have built a very eco-friendly timber boardwalk up to and around this massive old icon and it has definitely cut down on any accidental damage which had been occurring over the years as people tried to get closer and closer to the 'curtain' of roots. Aaaaah!! The stories this tree could tell!!!

Yes, there are lots of huge trees around WA

Perhaps not that huge, but I've seen some big ones. I love big trees like this. They are so beautiful, and the thought that they've been around possibly for hundreds of years is mind-boggling and awesome! Nature is such a gift!

I was driving around one of my streets, and that was about 7 mins from home, all of a sudden!

There it was.

What a magnificent tree I said, and I want to take my son to see it.

To me....it seems like first settlement kind.
We have plenty in Sydney CBD, and because of where I live, it has a great deal of Old History.....going back to 200 years.
Nothing was built here, until just the last few years, so that gives me an idea it is one that was planted, by some of the first folk to come to Australia.

Yes, North Qld. There're some big Moreton Bay Fig's in Brisbane, too. Have huge ones' where I went to School there.

Also seen the giant Seqoia Trees, outside 'Frisco, where some scenes for an old 'Star Wars' movie was filmed.
Yes - in California they have massive redwoods. There is one you can actually drive through! Some of the trees in the forests of Washington State are pretty massive too.
Yes, Norma, I've seen those 'drive though' trees on the TV. Massive & rather beautiful I thought. (I'd rather see them in real life though!) There maybe even a little video of them on YouTube!
by Miro
Yes, in California, New Zealand and W.A. - they are awesome! Some old oaks in old forest (what is left of it) in UK are pretty good too.
Yes I have seen trees like this in New Zealand.
Yes in California

Yes, I recently took photos of 1 in Paddington NSW, & a women walking past told me there were others like that in Centennial Park, (which is very close to Paddington.) but I still haven’t been to look for them yet.
Yes. When I was young they were quite common. We even had them in the schoolyards. They were magic for playing around. I see that the PC brigade have, over the years, decided that public safety decrees that they must go :((

yes, Adelaide botanical gardens
Yes in California ,
