with spectacular views of offshore islands, marine stingers

The forest provides the perfect
environment for many rare species of ferns and orchids
(epiphytes), mammals, birds and insects. The Proserpine Rock

the northern part of the park. The giant stinging tree is
another resident in this park. Brushing against this tree
