Yup, that's it. The size isn't unusual for some of the Himalayan species, and the temperate rain forest climate here seems to suit them. Some of the bigger one can hit 45 ft or so. 
I grew up just down the road from Pukeiti Gardens which specialises in them, and has hundreds of different varieties. They have 65 acres of garden set in 890 acres of native rain forest. It's now owned by the Regional Council and free to visit.

There are still a few banana trees around.  They tend to grow in bunches.

due to the potassium in a banana, it gives off radiation as the K-40 degrades, called the banana equivalent radiation dose.  it is equal to about 2% of the radiation in one chest x-ray.  slick, very slick! good health a peel, trying to stem the effects of aging a bunch. :)

I am not sure if it is fact or fiction but I was once told that after eating bananas, people are more attractive as blood donors to mosquitos.  Also, the peel of a banana is supposedly rubbed on the sting and it will relieve the itching.  I guess the scent one emits after eating them makes skeeters go bananas.

I have a new tree for today.  This picture was taken at the Lake Alfred Citrus Arboritum last Tuesday. I'll give you a hint.  It is a cold tolerant root stock for citrus.  The tree planted for wind blocks are eucalyptus of some sort.  They grow up to 15' per year here.
