Bungwall Fern. Botanical name: Blechnum indicum. This fern has fronds to 1m length. It grows in swampy areas in many Queensland districts. While known as Bungwall by aborigines in Moreton Bay, further north it is called Dugal. Uses: The tuberous root was soaked, roasted, and ground on grinding stones to make flour, and then cooked to make "johnny cake."
