Tranquil rainforest waterfall

Tranquil rainforest waterfall
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

MY FAVOURITE day hike in my local area is the Toolona Circuit deep in the heart of Lamington National Park. From O'Reilly's the track descends into a deeply cut gorge to the Toolona Stream, a tranquil succession of waterfalls cascading through the dense rainforest jungle. From there it ascends the valley to the stream's source. Here starts a large stand of mysterious Antarctic Beech forest in a perpetually mist enshrouded Gondwanaland lost world above the edge of a kilometre high cliff dramatically marking the Queensland/New South Wales border.

The prettiest of these waterfalls below the lost world is Chalahn Falls, where the stream quietly tumbles over a protruding rock formation covered in its own ecosystem of mist soaked plants.

In the stillness of the morning, conditions were perfect for a very long exposure of the waterfall. Whilst the rocks and vegetation remained perfectly still, the softly falling waterfall blended into delicate ribbons of silk against the sharp volcanic rock over which it fell.
