The Valley of the Shadows

Massive banyan trees and 20 metre high forests of Kentia palms cast brooding shadows in this enclave on the east coast. Situated near Clear Place, the Valley of the Shadows is one of the more unusual bushwalks you will ever do. You will see banyan trees with huge 'limbs' that cover almost a hectare (or two acres). The banyan tree's aerial roots grow down from the branches to the soil and the tree looks like it's 'walking' across the terrain.
