|Notley Fern Gorge Walk
|We had spent the morning looking for orchids, had a great lunch in George Town and for the afternoon we were going to look at Notley Fern Gorge. The car park looked familiar so we might have done this walk before, some 20 years ago. The walk map indicated that you walked down hill to the creek along the creek then up again. The best bit was we expected to see orchids along the way. It is a rain forest walk so we saw loads of ferns, hence the walk name and tall trees. It is a relatively short walk at 1.75km but in our usual way we took our time taking photos and enjoying the views. If it's not raining rain forests are great places.
