High on the hills of the Atherton Tablelands in far north Queensland stands a glasshouse built by orchid expert Bruce Gray. Whether from the cloud forests of South America, the Himalayan Mountains of India, the mangroves of the Philippines, the rocky outcrops of Madagascar or the dense rainforests of New Guinea, tropical species thrive here. Award-winning photographers Stanley and Kaisa Breeden capture the plants in rich, detailed images. Step into the orchid house to discover this extraordinary and diverse world.
