Chichester State Forest to the north of Newcastle.
A dirt road takes an easy climb through the tall timbers and constantly winds round gullies full of dense rainforst and eventually a few breaks allow the day tripper to see out further afield. At about 900 metres or 3000 feet Antarctic Beech trees begin to grow and eventually they dominate the higher cool temperate areas (not accessed by this particular road). A signpost or two could have allowed for identification of the species.

A delightful, bucolic scene. It appears this is at quite a high elevation...
