Temperate Rainforest in Great Otway National Park is visited by Zeb and Eider Duck. We stopped at Maits Rest to experience the 800 meter rainforest walk.
The trees are tall and the path is clear.
The trunk on this tree is huge!
Great Otway National Park consists of 103,185 hectares and is located 162 km southwest of Melbourne. There is prolific plant growth throughout the dense rain forest.
The trees and tropical ferns are beautiful and create a peaceful environment.
Even fallen tree trunks are huge.
The Mountain Ash (Eucalyptus regnans) grow over 100 meters, making them the tallest flowering plants in the world.
The rare carnivorous, Otway Black Snail, is found only in the Otways where it feeds on insects and other snails and worms.
We did not see a real Otway Black Snail, but maybe that was a good thing. We really loved our time in this temperate rainforest.
Wow! This tree trunk is huge. Fabian can stand inside the tree!
Even the road leading out of Maits Rest was pretty.
We hope you visit a rainforest. They are fascinating.
