What’s also special about this rainforest are the amazing Bunya Pines (Araucaria Bidwillii) which tower above the forest on ridges and hill tops all over the place. Some of them looked to be at least 70 metres high. This is the homeland of the Bunya Pine – a majestic tree so important to the Aboriginal people who have inhabited this part of the world for thousands of years.
As an added bonus, a friendly Lace Monitor swaggered up to me and gulped down a chicken bone while I was filiming him.
Yes, this is paradise, and we’re so lucky to be living in it.
