Ephemeral Wetlands

Enjoy a creek-side stroll past frog ponds and ground orchids.

A small creek lined with rainforest vegetation creates a cool, shady contrast to the open eucalypt woodland. 

In spring, see the swamp orchids in bloom, one of Australia's largest and most beautiful terrestrial orchids.

Visit the pond and try to spot tadpoles in the water or frogs and reptiles hiding in the vegetation.
