Within the Humid Tropics Biome is the
Rainforest Display, which features trees and
plants of the world’s tropical regions and
includes a man-made watercourse, with a 10
metre high waterfall, splash pool, cascading
stream and lagoon.
This watercourse is fed by pumps that are
located in a pumping station adjacent to the
lagoon, from where the water is drawn. A 65
metre long stream runs between the splash
pool and the lagoon. The entire area through
which the stream runs is maintained at a
temperature in excess of 22°C with a relative
humidity of 90%.
