Greenes Falls (Maiala picnic area)

Arrival: 10am on Sunday (Public Holiday), Carpark around 50% full. Weather: Cloudy morning but local rain past 3 days.
Track: Begins on the 'Rainforest Circuit Track'. From the Car park, maybe 100m from the car park, keep left at the first fork (clockwise direction). After 700m cross the service road to start the 'Greenes Falls Return'. A mix of natural bush track, boardwalk, stone/timber steps. Due to the recent rainfall there were some areas where the track was quite muddy. Hiking Poles were quite useful in these areas. Plenty of Tall Tree Specimens and Funghi to entice young ones and city-bound wanderers. Upon completion of the Greene Falls Return, the 1.2km leg of the Rain Forest Circuit is a steeper, but worth the effort. Relatively accessible to younger ones (>7yo).
Photography: Aperture Priority worked well under canopy. ISO 1000 & F1.8 worked well on the day.
Equipment: On a dry day, runners should be fine. Unfortunately, being damp/muddy - Hiking Boots/Shoes were clearly outperforming runners (or the numerous thongs seen on the track!!). This was a moderately used track, but many wanderers appeared to be carrying nothing more than car keys and wallet.
