Some years ago, we travelled from Scone to Gloucester via Barrington Tops NP
and pulled up in a very old pine forest for lunch. The trees were really big
and the forest floor was littered with logs and fallen trees. Clearly it was
not a forest managed for harvesting.
We were amazed at the 5 or 6 lyrebirds getting around. There was not much
understory, and the ground was soft and churned up.
