Photographer's Note

Please open both photos in new tabs for the large versions.
One of the most famous tracks in Lamington NP is the Border track, so named because, for part of its length it follows the Queensland/New South Wales border. It joins the 2 major parts of the park (the O'Reillys area and the Binna Burra area. At 23 serious kilometres long it was beyond our aging legs capacity so we just walked through the rain forest along part of the track.
All along the track are tall trees many of them hosting one of a range of strangler figs which grow up the trunk of host trees in in many cases result in the death of the host tree.
You can clearly see the strangler fig on the right hand tree in the main photo.
In the WS is a photo of what often happens - the host has died and the top foliage has broken off leaving the dead trunk of the tree and the strangler fig.
