Curtain strangler fig

(viewed 10009 times)
Another stranger fig tree, this time called the "curtain". The tree it
was originally killing collapsed onto an adjacent tree, which then also
got strangled and fell onto another tree, leading to this weird
wedge-shape.

Fallen giant

(viewed 1685 times)
This was taken on a nice little 18km cycle around the rainforests. I
hadn't been on a bike in years, but it was good despite the
saddle-bottom. We stopped off to do a few mini-treks through the
forests.
One of the giant trees in the rainforest had come down after a
particularly nasty typhoon a few years ago. The photos don't really
show how big this thing was.

Bedroom companion

Stayed in a great little hostel in the middle of the Tablelands, and
found a few little geckos to keep me company :)

Tree kangaroos?

(viewed 2965 times)
We spent hours looking for these animals, but they eluded us. Actually
I think it's all a big scam by the Australians to promote tourism in the
area! This is one of only 6 signs in the world warning drivers about
tree 'roos.

More waterfalls

Next to mount Hypipamee crater

Millaa Millaa falls

This is Millaa Millaa falls. You may recognise it as the waterfalls that the Timotei shampoo lady did her trademark hair-flick in the adverts.

Millaa is apparently aboriginal for "water", and when a word is used twice it means "lots of", so this translates as "Lots Of Water Falls".

While there were a couple of tourists here, it wasn't too busy, and we were the only ones stupid enough to brave the freezing cold waters in order to swim round the back of the falls, do the classic hair-flick pose under it, and swim through it. Unfortunately the person I gave my camera to to take photos of me doing this buggered off for a coffee :(

The cow sculpture was in the local town of Millaa Millaa. Our tour guide played the Duelling Banjos music from Deliverence as we were driving through...
