In a little suburb called Maianbar, tucked away in the Royal National Park a couple of k's in from the coast on the southern edge of Sydney, Australia.

Hi all! My first post on this new forum - 'onya Dennis!

Now home at Terania Creek, The Channon - a beautiful, sub-tropical, hippy/alternate rural region north of Lismore, northern New South Wales, Australia.

Still recovering from my FANTASTIC brom trip to U.S.A. Stay tuned!

Maureen, I used to Live in Auckland, and spent many happy holidays in your area. Lovely little bit of the world you live in.
Matt and Rick, you two are lucky! Having just been on a road trip up your way, and visiting a few comercial and private sellers, I am envious of the selection of bromeliads you have close at hand!
Kerry and Bromaholic, your area is next on our roadtrip. Planning on doing a weekend trip between Bangalow, the pocket and Lismore way. So lush and green!
I am on the mid north coast of N.S.W, Australia, very near to Coffs Harbour. Beautiful one day, raining the next! I love it here. Short winters, long warm summers, close to the coast and not far to the mountains. I have a couple of acres here, and think it will take sometime to fill it with broms, but I am doing my best!
Africa sounds like it could be a great place to do a bromeliad road trip? As does Hawaii, Lisa. Loved the videa clip, very funky music. I'll be sure to get your suggestions when planning my visit.
So many places and bromeliads, and not enough time and money!

Home for me is the East Coast Bays, Auckland. We bought a section here in 1998 with a 5 year plan to build & sell...but we like the area so much that we're still here!

Cheers, Andrew.

Like Andrew, I'm also in Auckland...out west though in Henderson, that unfortunately gets a few frosts due to the valley we're in...Hope to move one day to a place on a hill with a view and lots more room for plenty of broms, greenhouses, palms, aloes, more broms, pools, agaves, rock gardens with alcs, MORE broms and greenhouses, tropical trees, shadehouses,...now you know how I drift off to sleep every night !!  Grin

With all these Aucklanders posting I thought I better speak up.  I'm also in the Auckland 'burbs, in a place called Mellons Bay.  My yard is on fairly interesting terrain with a small gully cutting through it.  We get the odd frost in some parts of the garden and I am getting in trouble with the missus who says I spend too much time and energy landscaping the garden to be more brom friendly.  I tend to disagree having so far only turned the front patch of lawn into a bromy rock garden, put up a small glasshouse on a retained slope, built a wee shadehouse next to it, and have designs on several other little pockets here an there... really I can't fathom what she's on about Wink

I used to be in Warkworth, NZ (north of Auckland, on the east coast).
I've recently moved to Melbourne, Australia. I used to have a few thousand broms, but now starting all over again...
Quite enjoying getting my hands on hybrids which are still 'rare' back home  Cool

I guess I shouldn't leave Gonz all alone as being the only mainlander to introduce themselves...I live in San Diego, California.  In the city proper but on the far eastern edge.  Inland enough to usually be 10-15F above coastal San Diego.  On top of a mesa, so not much danger of frost (but we will see when I build my shade house in the canyon).
