Fieldia australis is a small climbing plant found in eastern Australian rainforests. Commonly seen in the cooler rainforests at higher altitudes, it also grows in the warmer rainforests with a high humidity. The plant uses adventitious roots to grip tree trunks, mossy rocks or tree ferns. Flowering occurs mostly in summer or autumn, when it bears an attractive, relatively long, thin, white flower. The fruit is a whitish egg-shaped berry with some purple markings.
Although regarded as an epiphyte, clinging to trunks or rocks, it has been seen free standing at the base of a waterfall in Mt Wilson. It can make an attractive potted plant and will grow in low light indoors provided sufficient moisture is supplied, as with many ferns.
