When you visit in the Summer months, you would be forgiven for thinking that a bunch of us are just sitting around in the sun.
Chances are you may be right or we may be watching another of Nature’s marvels at work (and sometimes this takes time).
With there being about 2,500 species of cicada around the world, with more than 200 being in Australia, then chances are that you have already witnessed this metamorphosis and understand the attraction.
Australian cicadas differ from many other types because of our diversity of climate and terrain.
Here cicadas are found on tropical islands and cold coastal beaches around Tasmania; in tropical wetlands; high and low deserts; alpine areas of New South Wales and Victoria; large cities like Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane; and Tasmanian highlands and snowfields.
