First time running this mostly single track. I started at the Roseville Bridge and took the Lyrebird to Cascades and then to get more distance and some hills continued up the path to the road, and then return to Roseville.A huge diversity of animals, birds and plants exist here and each plays an important role in the rainforest ecosystem. Leaves, branches, fruit and seeds constantly drop from the tree canopy to form leaf litter. This provides shelter and camouflage for many creatures on the forest floor such as frogs and ground birds. Fungi, insects and animals help to break the organic matter down, which the trees can then reabsorb as nutrients. Brush turkey can be seen foraging through this leaf litter for insects and seeds. They always have one eye on the job and another looking out for predators, because it doesn’t need to be a special occasion for carpet pythons to enjoy a turkey lunch.
