    There are lots of great things waiting for you in Tooloom National Park. Here are some of the highlights.


    Listen out for calls of pied currawongs signifying the return of colder weather as you find a sunny spot to enjoy a bite to eat or stroll through the rainforest.


    Brilliant new leaf shoots adorn red cedar trees on the upper slopes of the rainforest. In the early morning or following prolonged rain, carpet pythons can be seen basking in the warming spring sun along the entrance road.


    Photograph or simply gaze at the spectacular view when, on a clear winter's day, the farming valley is usually filled with morning mist.
