Great Otway National Park
The Legend of the Dogwood Tree

Legend has it, at the time of the crucifixion, the Dogwood
grew the size of the oak and other forest trees.
So strong and firm was the wood of it,
that it was chosen for the timber of the Cross
And Jesus smiled upon it, and said to it ...
I make you this promise ,,,,
Never again shall the Dogwood grow enough
to be used for a Cross.
Henceforth, it shall be slender and bent
And blossoms shall be in the form of a Cross,
two long petals and two short petals.

The Great Otway National Park stretches from Torquay through to Princetown and up through the Otways hinterland towards Colac. The park features rugged coastlines, sandy beaches, rock platforms and windswept heathland. In the north, the park features tall forests, ferny gullies, magnificent waterfalls and tranquil lakes.

The colour white is color at its most complete and pure, the colour of perfection. The psychological meaning of white is purity, innocence, wholeness and completion. In color psychology white is the colour of new beginnings, of wiping the slate clean, so to speak. It is the blank canvas waiting to be written upon. Green symbolises renewal and growth. It is the color you see the most in the natural environment. ... It also means balance, calm and harmony.
