Photographer's Note

The Morans Falls are located in the Lamington National Park. The track descends 140 metres through a sub-tropical rainforest of booyongs, figs and brush box trees to the Morans Falls Lookout where an excellent view of the falls and the Morans Creek Gorge can be seen. For the more interested, layers of volcanic lava flows are also visible with the more resistant parts having formed cliffs along the valley.

The Lamington National Park is a major national perk which protects the largest area of undisturbed sub-tropical rainforest remaining in South East Queensland.

The 20,500 ha park covers a series of densely forested valleys and ranges rising more than 1100m where the McPherson Range marks the Queensland-New South Wales border.

An extensive walking track system providing easy access to forests, creeks and waterfalls radiates from the O’Reillys Plateau.

The main posting is a view from the lookout on a very wet day, while WS1 is a vertical view to include a partial view of the lookout structure as well as the DANGER sign, which gives some red colour to the frame. In WS2 you can admire one the permanent residents of the park. The picture was taken about 2 metres from the snake which was sunbathing on top of a dead palm tree branch.
