Fern Tree Forest Walk, Mulligans Campground, Gibraltar Range National Park, Part 3.

Fern Tree Forest Walk covers a section of the 45 km Gibraltar-Washpool World Heritage Walk.
Fern Tree Forest Walk is a medium grade, 8 km circuit.

We made our way from Mulligans Campground to Mulligans Hut and the start of the walk. It wasn't long before we came to the turnoff to The Needles but we decided to do that leg of the walk another time and continued on. The track was bordered by a lush green understory of ferns before leading through a fairytale avenue of Fern Trees.

However, there is a lot more to the Fern Tree Forest Walk. We continued on through a dryer forest of eucalypts and Grass Trees before climbing across granite with magnificent views.

Plants along the track.
The last leg of the walk follows alongside Little Dandahra Creek where we saw a number of butterflies such as Orchard Swallowtails, Meadow Argus and Evening Browns.

We thoroughly enjoyed this walk and its constantly changing scenery.
