Ferns and Mountain Ash
Yesterday, we walked among tree ferns and mountain ash in cold, dark, damp, muddy glens close to Melbourne. First, we did the Glen Nayook rainforest walk in the Neerim district, a gorgeous part of Gippsland and the world. The walk was short (about 2 kilometres), steep in parts, and amazingly picturesque. At the bottom we walked past large mossy boulders along a stretch where the Tarago river runs underground.
From there we went in search of the Ada tree. We found it in a magical rainforest in the Warburton valley, after a long drive along an unsealed road. It was worth the effort. A real monster. My photos don’t do justice to its size. Still, my mind has captured it for all time.
