Serenity of the Rainforest
This creek is pure magic...the hike in the rainforest with lots of creek crossing leads eventually to this place where I saw these great moss covered boulders. I could not resist to spend an hour here for a series of images.
This image is a panorama made of 6 vertical images and cropped to this aspect ratio.
Just one day after my visit my friend Kim visited the same creek and amazingly stopped at the same spot to take an image. Make sure you check it out here.
Green Mountains is the park section name for the western side of Lamington National Park and 'Binna Burra' is the name of the eastern side of the park. The park's information centre is approximately 935 m above sea level. Other areas of Lamington National Park reach almost 1200 m above sea level. Part of the charm of walking in Lamington National Park is that you never know what you might see!
Leeches are common in rainforest particularly after rain. They are not dangerous and can be pulled or flicked off with few effects other than severe itching and sometimes local irritation of the skin. The bite will bleed for some time due to an anti-clogging agent that the leech injects. An analgesic cream will ease the itch. To prevent leech bites wear long-sleeved shirts and trousers, a hat and apply insect repellent to exposed skin before walking. Another good idea is to rub repellent on feet (and even shoes) before putting on footwear.
