Walking Into the Rainforest Aug 25, 2011
The journey to the ‘tree top walk’ will be started at the Booyong Walk entrance. Booyong is the name of the rainforest tree that has unique buttress root (the large intertwined roots typically found in shallow rooted tree as a result of poor nutrition in the soil layers). Some of the Booyong’s buttress actually created unique feature that looks like a pool. The walk was only 10-15 minutes until reaching the beginning of the tree top walk. The tree top walk consists of wooden bridge which is hanging above the ground for around 20 m. The bridge will swing a bit with the passing by of walkers, and each section is only allowed to accommodate 6 persons at a time. The pathway of the bridge forms an enclosed loop, in which the end will be connected again to the beginning of the trail. In the middle of the bridge, there is a ladder leading up to a viewing platform (which rise to around 30 m above the ground). The ladder is enclosed with securing wire, however it is quite narrow and only comfortable for one people passing. The wooden plates of the bridge are also used as memorials, as some metal plates were crafted with the names of the passed away family members. The walk is relatively short, from the Booyong Walk entrance, back to the same spot, takes around half an hour.
