Soon after setting off we came across several Habenaria dives alongside the path. A bit further on we found some Orthochilus ensatus growing amongst longer grass. In the shadow of another forested drainage line we found some Eucomis comosa var. comosa in flower.

We made several incursions down to the stream bed, finding similar clusters of this pretty forest dwelling species each time. Our downward progress eventually came to an end at a waterfall and the slope beyond became to steep for us to go any further so we stopped for our lunch.

On the way back we took a short detour and came across an upright form variant of Eulophia hians var. hians we have previously only seen at Rennies.
