Rainforest boardwalk


Boardwalk through the endangered temperate rainforest Boardwalk through the endangered temperate rainforest
If it wasn't for the shelter of the steep cliffs, the eucalptus trees would have overwhelmed and poisoned this temperate rainforest 200 million years ago.

Microclimates on the cliffs

Another shot showing the many different microclimates on the cliff, each with its own plant and animal life. It would be great to have a cottage hidden away in one of the secluded pockets of greenery, where you could rest peacefully away from the rest of the world.

Blue Mountains Youth Hostel


Blue Mountains Youth Hostel Blue Mountains Youth Hostel
I stayed here for two nights. Excellent accomodations! It used to be an art deco guest house, and has been converted into a wonderful hostel. It's great staying in a hostel, if you don't mind sharing a room (and showering) with dozens of athletic university students that are backpacking their way across the country.
