Warm Rainforest

Joseph Banks Reserve has warm temperate rainforest and cool temperate rainforest. The warm rainforest area facing north here includes a water feature of a series of ponds and waterfalls. Eucalypts were planted in the early days of the Reserve to create a canopy to protect the rainforest plants.

Dendrobium orchids and birds nest ferns grow amongst the dappled light of trees such as the Bunya pine (Araucaria bidwillii).
