Rainforest in the city

This is part of the Rainforest Walk in the Australian National Botanic Gardens. I took this photo just before the 5pm closing time today. It's cool and green and damp in this tiny gully at the foot of Black Mountain, and it's a peaceful place to visit. We didn't have much time today - just a quick stroll along the lower boardwalk under the tree ferns and along the creek, across the bridge you can see, and back along the upper boardwalk.

The Botanic Gardens are about a 30 minute walk or only a few minutes by car from the city centre.
