King Billy Pines, Cradle Valley, Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area
What a glorious name for these towering trees, named for the last Tasmanian native who died in 1869. The trail through this forest is peaceful and green, bordered by these twisted trees cloaked in moss. Unfortunately, bushfires threaten these ancient trees in other parts of the Tasmanian wilderness.
