Eucalypts are predominantly Australian – there are around 900 species, with only a handful of species endemic to nearby countries. They are estimated to be around 100 million years old, and have several unusual features including fruiting bodies (gumnuts) that withstand heat and release their well-preserved seeds after bushfires.

Common in the shallows, this colourful urchin is rarely noticed by divers as it’s too shallow or nestled in among kelp fronds. The alternating pink spines / yellow suckers are interesting – in many urchin species the spines dominate the suckers. Kurnell
