Eight walkers arrived at Green Mountains on a cool, overcast morning, setting off on the Tooloona Creek Circuit anti-clockwise. The walk up to Bithongabel was magical as we passed through rainforest splashed with occasional sunshine and heavy mist.
We also passed many stands of Antarctic Beech covered in verdant green mosses and lichens. These gnarled trees are the dinosaurs of the forest and their origins date back to Gondwana Land when Australia was still attached to Antarctica. We arrived at the Bithongabel camp site, where we had our morning drink break.
