Curtain Fig National Park

Amazing Tree

At the Curtain Fig National Park, you can gaze in awe at this 500 year old, 50m tall wonder, a strangler fig with a ‘curtain’ of vertical roots that once embraced its long-gone host tree. Walk around the boardwalk to view the tree from every angle and get some fabulous artistic photographs of the root curtain. Keep an eye out for the elusive Lumholtz’s tree-kangaroo, known as ‘mabi’ to the Traditional Owners, in the endangered mabi forest that is protected within this small national park.
