The Ancient Forest is the worlds farthest inland rainforest located 800km from the ocean. I was awed by these massive ancient trees some of which were 5metres in diameter. As we walked through the forest it felt like stepping back in time into a forest that needs to be cherished and respected. The trail is very natural and well maintained although not suitable for bicycles. Throughout the forest are information boards which kept us well informed. The entire hike took about an hour at a brisk pace and we got to see Tree Beard, the Big Tree and a pretty little waterfall. This is a jewel.
