Tropical Rainforest Image Gallery

This web page contains a selection of pictures which I took during a short visit to the Lamington National Park in South-Eastern Queensland, late 1997. Australia is widely perceived to be a continent of desert and scrub, however, what is less appreciated is that we have some truly superb rainforest habitats with many unique types of wildlife.

A view down into the rainforest canopy - note the differences between the undergrowth and trees.



Another view down on to the canopy., taken from a walkway in the treetops.



Buttressed root structures above ground are characteristic of larger rainforest trees, a byproduct of shallow root structures.



Under the canopy, looking up, a large tree fern in the centre of the image.



Strangler Figs are common in Lamington National Park.



Yet another view from under the canopy, with a good specimen of the Staghorn visible, as well as a Stinging Tree.
