 Rainforest Types of the Central Eastern Rainforests of Australia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Sub-tropical rainforests are generally found where the rainfall is more than 1300mm annually and growing in fertile eutrophic parent rocks (basalt and rich shales), you'll most likely find subtropical rainforest favouring sheltered gullies from sea level to about 900 metres.
Dry Rainforest types are distinguished from Subtropical rainforest by scattered emergent species such as Hoop Pine, Teak (Flindersia australis) and Lacebark (Brachychiton discolor) trees in the upper canopy, and 10 to 30 species in the lower canopy.
Although Warm Temperate rainforest is predominant in the parks south of Coffs Harbour, examples can be found in all the World Heritage National Parks of the Tweed (Wollumbin) Volcano region between 450 to 1200 metres, with major stands to be found in the Border Ranges and Mount Warning National Parks.
