Wind through beautiful subtropical rainforest, among gigantic strangler figs, piccabeen palms, climbing ferns and vines. Spy delicate orchids and other epiphytes clinging to the branches in search of precious sunlight.

Bridges and raised boardwalks stretch over trickling creeks and provide a heightened perspective of the forest. Stop at signs along the way, highlighting the incredible rainforest ecology and plants and animals that live here.

Bring binoculars to make the most of wildlife watching—fantails flit in the undergrowth while carpet pythons rest quietly in branches overhead.
