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

    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.
