Falcorostrum loop walking track winds its way through one of the largest stands of beech in Border Ranges National Park.
The best place to see ancient Antarctic beech trees is at the highest accessible point of the park. It is at the same elevation as the summit of Wollumbin/Mount Warning. Some of these trees may even be 2,000 years old, with falcorostrum orchids clinging to their trunks and branches. This is the only place these orchids are found.
The cool temperate rainforest this track takes you through is one of only a few pockets in the park. Alberts lyrebird is common to this area and can be seen scratching through leaf litter amidst the beech. Bring along your binoculars for a closer look. Youre most likely to spot one in the early morning or on an overcast day. Listen out for lyrebird display songs which could either be their own or the mimicked sounds of other species.
