This is one humongous fig tree! Never seen anything like it. If you like taking pictures of landmarks like me, this is worth a stop. It's located next to an Amtrak station and plenty of parking. You can't miss it!

It is hard to find but worth it. It is close to train station. The roots are massive but you can't touch it

Made it a point to check this tree out and I am glad we did. Wow, huge and just a wonder. Shame on the jerks that carved their names into the enormous bark and trunk.

Adjacent to the central Amtrak station is one of the most amazing historic trees in the US. Take time to wander over esp if you have children who loved Harry Potter & Hobbits.

So we had to drive by here just to see the this tree. It is the largest tree I've ever seen. If in the area, you need to see this!

This majestic tree used to mark the place where the 101 highway stopped at State Street for a traffic light...and traffic would back up dangerously. At least while stopped at that intersection one could get a great look at the Moreton Bay Fig, grand dame...More

....it has a beautiful canopy, amazing roots and a good back story. Thriving for its age, may it live long and prosper. A top tourist stop....not really.....we drove past on our Segway Tour.
