It’s easy to imagine you’ve wandered into a prehistoric forest on Tea Tree Falls walking track. Brown barrel eucalypts tower above you, while honeyeaters call from the understorey of banksia and tea tree.
Approaching Toms Cabin, you walk through a patch of Antarctic beech with hanging moss dripping from its branches. Here, near the headwaters of Styx River, the damp conditions prove excellent territory for other types of moss, including tall moss, which grows to 25cm, and sphagnum moss.
Tea Tree Falls walking track is one of the easiest tracks in this part of New England National Park, and is suitable for all walkers. It links Thungutti campground and Toms Cabin. For those who want to do a longer hike, it also joins Lyrebird walking track.
