We stopped to see this large strangler fig on the way to Mungalli. Large epiphytic ferns can be seen on the tree limbs.

 Mungalli Falls was just downstream of our accommodations. One evening we returned to this spot to observe phosphorescent glow worms and fungi.

 Rainbow skinks are often found along the edges of rainforest in sunny areas. After a quick rain shower we found many skinks along such edges.
 

Sulphur-crested cockatoos were abundant on this trip. Most were seen near rainforest or in towns.



 A large falls that we hiked to one afternoon. Although it was raining many people took the opportunity to swim over to the falls.



 A closer view of the falls.
