Today we drove out to visit the Dorrigo Rainforest Centre and Skywalk.
The Skywalk is not very long. It is just a small cantelever that would normally have a lovely view but it was very misty today.
We then took the Wonga Walk, which is normally a 3hour walk through World Heritage rainforest, to visit the Tristinia and Crystal Shower Falls. The end of the loop had had a landslip and was blocked so you had to walk back the way you came which added quite a few km's and hills.
It was a lovely walk, the rainforest and the waterfalls are beautiful.
When we got back we went on another shorter walk called the "walk with the birds". This walk takes about a 1/2 an hour and is on an elevated wooden walkway. We could hear lots of birds but we couldn't see many.
While having lunch in the nearby town I was horrified to discover that I had three leeches having me for lunch!!
Back to van, exhausted and leech bitten and yes........... it is still raining.
I would highly recommend the Dorrigo Rainforest Walk, preferably on a dry, leech free day.
