A view from Mt Sunday (site of Edoras in the Lord of the Rings films) of kettlehole wetlands. The turf vegetation of kettlehole wetlands is a rare habitat type. Threatened turf-forming plants found here include pygmy clubrush (Isolepis basilaris) and dwarf woodrush (Luzula celata). These kettleholes also provide important habitat for birds, and area a significant stronghold for the threatened Australasian crested grebe/kāmana, and New Zealand scaup/papango.

I love the simplicity of how these glacial kettleholes form.
