Flowering ginger plant, Zingiber macradenia.

One of the many beautiful and exotic ginger plants at Cairns Botanic Gardens. There are 1,300 species world-wide and many are used for medicinal and culinary purposes. I had not realised just how effective ginger was in combating sea-sickness until I visited Australia where ginger tablets are offered free on some of the boats going out to the Great Barrier Reef – trip organisers don’t want anything to spoil your day.
