Yesterday we went for a drive into the hinterland, the green behind the gold of the Goldcoast. The road climbed steadily through the rainforest. After days of constant rain the sun tantalized us by flitting in and out of the clouds. The rainforest was a deep luxurious  green dripping with moss, ferns and lichen. We walked along the track to the lookout and as we rounded a corner we stopped in our tracks and gazed in awe at these ancient giants from another world. They are the most majestic trees I have ever seen. They oozed with character and splendour. The low cloud swirled around them and a cold wind made us shiver. These damp cold conditions are what has created a climate that these giants thrive in.

It felt a thousand miles away from the glitz and glamour of the Goldcoast but it was only a thirty minute drive up the Lamington Range.

I will be posting more photos of our day out in the next few days on my travel blog, “Gypsy Life”
