Long Point rainforest

Dry rainforest

I find it hard to break my long-held “knowledgeâ€? that rainforests can only exist in areas of high rainfall. In many locations within the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, and especially around gullies, you can walk from eucalypt to dry rainforest in the space of a few metres. This photograph illustrates a section of dry rainforest at Long Point … and it exists only 25 km from home. I certainly wouldn’t have entertained that fact even just a few years ago.

    It seems nearly a contradiction on terms to have ‘dry rainforest’, doesn’t it?
