Curtain Fig National Park

Fig Tree Road, Yungaburra QLD 4884
This park protects a small area of an endangered type of forest, called mabi forest, the local Aborignal (Ngadjon) word for the Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo. The large fig tree found in this park is unique because the extensive aerial roots, that drop 15 metres to the forest floor, have formed a 'curtain'. Starting from a seed dropped high in the canopy, this strangler fig grew vertical roots, which gradually became thicker and interwoven. Over hundreds of years these roots have strangled the host causing it to fall into a neighbouring tree-a stage unique to the development of this fig. Vertical fig roots then formed a curtain-like appearance and the host trees rotted away, leaving the freestanding fig tree. The tree is thought to be nearly 50 metres tall, with a trunk circumference of 39 metres, and is estimated to be over 500 years old. Explore the elevated boardwalk that encircles the curtain fig, protecting the roots while allowing for uninterrupted views from all angles. Return at night to spotlight for the elusive Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo and other nocturnal animals....

Atherton Chinatown Site

Herberton Road, Atherton QLD 4883
The land surrounding the Hou Wang Mai was the site of an 1880's Chinese settlement. By 1897 there were over 180 Chinese living in the village known as Cedar Town, with a short main street lined with small timber and iron shops and houses. The Hou Wang Mai was built in 1903. By 1909, the commercial premises included corn merchants, food and goods stores, a herbalist, two gambling dens and an entertainment place that employed musicians. There was also a Tong society meeting hall. After World War One when Chinese land leases were turned over to returned soldiers, most Chinese left the district. European speculators owned the site. However, local maize farmer and Hong Kong born Mow Jue Sue purchased the property in 1925 and it remained in his family until 1967 when it was transferred to John and Violet Fong On.
