Lamington National Park

One of Queensland, Australia’s absolute gems, Lamington National Park exemplifies what it means to explore Australia’s markedly majestic natural life. Full of waterfalls, hiking tracks, rainforests and expansive plant- animal-life, it is no wonder that Lamington is considered one of this continent’s premiere destinations.

Covering over 20,500 hectares, Lamington has a diverse flora life, housing majestic plants that are not found anywhere else in the world and has tree-roots that have been in existence for more than 5,000 years. You can also find a similarly significant and overwhelming bird-life--it's full of king parrots, cockatoos, pale-headed rosella’s, sooty owls, red-browed treecreepers, just to list a few. Also be on the lookout for exotic reptiles, frogs and mammals.

If Lamington’s habitat was not enough to sell you, its numerous waterfalls, whether it be Running Creek or Elabana Falls, are world class, and not to be overlooked.

Practical Info

Located just 62 miles south of Brisbane, the hour long ride to the northern entrance of the park is more than worth your time. If a car is not available to you, there a few bus services that can be easily found that go directly from Brisbane through to Binna Burra or Green Mountains entrances. If you feel like you don’t quite want to leave the premises after just one day, camping grounds are available.
