Wingham Things to Do
Wingham Brush with its colony Flying...
Of course we visited Wingham Brush Nature Reserve, a beautiful tropical lowland rain forest located next to Wingham. We took a walk through the rainforest on the Graham Allen Walk. This boardwalk meanders through the rainforest and Flying Fox Circuit, runs directly beneath the flying foxes resting place. An interesting sight foxes hanging from the trees. We have not done it, but at sunset, thousands of flying foxes fly out in search of food. This should be a spectacular sight as easily seen from the riverbank. Besides the flying foxes are many more plants, trees and native animals to see. We were impressed by the most significant trees in the Brush, the hugh Morton Bay figs (Ficus macrophylla). Some are more than one hundred years old and 60 meters high. It is popular to take pictures of family or friends between the buttress and the Moreton Bay fig. Nice to know that the name Moreton Bay comes from Queensland.
