|Our Safari Tent at Binna Burra Rainforest Campground|
Lamington is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, which includes the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world.
The Gondwana area, originally listed in 1986 to cover rainforests in New South Wales, was extended in 1994 to include rainforests on the Queensland side of the border. Gondwana meets three of the four natural criteria for listing:
- represents a major stage of the earth's evolutionary history
- is an outstanding example of ongoing ecological and biological processes.
- contains the most important natural habitats for conserving biological diversity.
|Satin Bower Bird (female)|
I'm not a practiced birder so I was quite chuffed to capture the Eastern Whipbird and the Female Satin Bowerbird which incidentally were both taken only metres from our camp-site.
I really liked this location and would love to return again whether it's with our own tent or staying in an on-site safari tent. Either way, it's a lovely place to wind down and also very close to home!!
