Photo Number 1 What a great way to enjoy a meal!

The Reserve was crowded when I arrived. A large group had just finished their morning walk and were enjoying their morning meal all over the carpark area.

Wondering and wandering among the tall trees. The short walk allows you get really close to the fabulous rainforest.

Photo Number 3 Fascinating bloom:

Genevie points out this flowering tree with beautiful blooms emerging from the trunk. This habit is called cauliflory and is common among rainforest trees. I forgot its scientific name as soon as she mentioned it...

Lianas are lovely: Genevie explains the important role of lianas in the rainforest.
