deserves a name.
We came to the base of a surprising waterfall, where a stream crashes about 30 metres over a basalt rock face. (Height adjusted - I got mixed up with my estimation of units. About twice the height of the local trees. DJW)
ThIs is the stream which flows behind the Pie Shop, and flows under the Illawarra Highway, beside the railway crossing bridge. The road sign says it is the poetically named "Macquarie Rivulet". The stream then veers through some really dense rainforest, then within 300 metres distance, it crashes over this little cliff.
Jim, showed me on the map that the Macquarie Rivulet really is not the creek which bears this name (on the road sign). In fact the stream of that name originates close to the corner where Tourist Road starts.
The trouble is, that leaves this little waterfall as an un-named waterfall on an un-named creek. That seems a shame. This pretty waterfall deserves a name.
*****Does this fungus have a name?
There was another small surprise in this little forest patch.
The darkest little "toadstool" which I have ever seen. Black-brown above, and black-brown in the gills too.
I can find no illustration in my fungi reference books to match this little mystery fungus.
