Rainforest Walk #2



Strangler Fig weaving its spell around another rainforest tree


then when the falls came into view from the lookout

the sky looked so pretty out there

continuing the walk beside this little trickle of water down the slope






At this point our group hopped into the 20-seater 4-WD bus for the ride back


in time to catch the end of day back at O'Reilly's Retreat, Lamington N.P., Qld.

Such a great place and so close to home.Were you on a photography tour?

Carole M. said...

thanks for comments here already ... and to Diane, close to your home not mine. Just turned into a photography tour for me; I'd naturally hoped for more of birds especially but I think the cooler weather had them laying low in the valleys. It really was a fabulous place to visit and it would be a top place to revisit during their annual 'bird week' in spring

What a lovely place to go on a tour. That strangler fig is not something I would want growning around my tree as it looks like it would be the end of the bigger tree. Never saw one of those before. Fascinating. The falls looks gorgeous too! Glad you had a fun tour!

What a neat place. I am intrigued with the strangler fig but don't think the tree is.

The strangler fig makes pretty patterns...but the name sure is scary!! :)

Paper Hugs,

The rainforest in that area is staggering - it's been a while since we last visited, but I recognised it immediately!!
