I don't know if you knew when you photographed it, but this is a King Billy Pine (Athrotaxis selaginoides) - quite rare and only found in alpine rainforests in the west of Tasmania. They can grow to around 1500 years old (this one is probably 7-800yrs)!
No, I did not know that. We are still trying to identify various birds, plants, and trees. So your help is very much appreciated. Thank you! There is such a variety of trees! It's amazing.
