Australian Forest School

Today we went to Springbrook which is a community in the Gold Coast, within the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia.   Few places on earth contain so many plants and animals which remain relatively unchanged from their ancestors in the fossil record. There was so much to see we are going to have to back on another day.

We went up a very steep road and stopped at lots of lookouts to see the amazing views of the rain forests, waterfalls and the skyline of the Goldcoast.

The forest is very different to ours. The trees are massive and so tall. They have the most amazing roots. At one of the lookouts we were in the clouds and then they cleared away to show the view and then came back and we could see nothing.

  1. There are some scary spiders here Maddie. Mostly they are up high in the trees ! The buildings are very tall when you get close to them as well. We are hoping to go up the tallest called the Q1 which has 78 floors. Thats a long lift ride but at least we don’t have to climb the stairs !
