Moreton Bay Figs
In the playground of the school where I (Jenny) teach there are some amazing Moreton Bay Fig trees. They are very old and drop a lot of fruit that causes a great mess during the year, and their roots have caused parts of the asphalt to lift. But they are beautiful, and provide wonderful shade. I have taken a Year 6 class outside to sketch these trees this week.
I found a sketch by Brett Whitely of a Moreton Bay Fig...I'll have to show the class next week.

Fig trees may be cool, though from my experience dried figs are not so cool.
