Royal National Park Sydney - Sandstone country

Royal National Park is an amazing area of protected land due south of Sydney. This was the worlds second National Park after Yellowstone in the USA.

This park contains some landscapes that I am not all that familiar with Sandstone geology influencing the ecology which has developed above.

Although the riverbanks contained interesting and appealing exposed rock ledges there were a great many walks and tracks in the park away from the larger creeks which contained striking trees and amazing landscape forms....

The slow incremental pace and adaptability of tree growth can result in some growth patterns which seem to defy analysis...molten trees anyone?

Now I am not someone who is crazy about the beach, however I do really like cliffs, waterfalls and the unique ways that creeks meet the sea...
