Tooloom walking track takes you on a short, easy walk a little deeper into the lush rainforest of Tooloom Scrub, which is part of Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. Over 200 species of birds have been recorded in the park and many of these inhabit the rainforest.
To either side of this trail are large rainforest trees and vines stretching from the leaf-littered forest floor to the high canopy above. Twisted roots of strangler figs can be seen among walking stick palms, which fruit bright red in summer.
Bring along your binoculars and take your time birdwatching. You may be lucky enough to spot an endangered Coxen's fig-parrot, which is one of the smallest parrots in Australia at only 15-16cm long. It's mainly bright yellow-green with red and blue markings on its relatively large head. Their call is quick and high-pitched and easy to miss, so keep your ears as well as your eyes peeled.
