What You Can Expect

2-Day O'Reilly's Lamington National Park Tour

2-Day O'Reilly's Lamington National Park Tour

Day 1: Brisbane / Lamington National Park (D)
Depart Brisbane and climb high above the surrounding coastal plain to the cool, quiet rainforests of Lamington Plateau. Visit Mount Tamborine with its spectacular panoramic views of the Gold Coast and glistening waters of the blue Pacific Ocean. Enjoy an opportunity for morning tea and a leisurely walk in the fresh mountain air. From here, head toward the 'Green Mountains' of O'Reilly's.

Along the way, enjoy a stop at the Gallery Walk Retail Precinct, where the Mount Tambourine Winery and Homestead is located. Treat your taste buds to a wine tasting of the region's blends (own expense) before rejoining your guide and continuing toward O'Reilly's.

After checking into O'Reilly's Rainforest Guesthouse, the rest of the afternoon is free to enjoy this natural wonderland. The Lamington National Park offers 160 kilometers of walking tracks to over 500 waterfalls and panoramic mountain lookouts. Experience temperate beech forest high on the border ranges, warm sub-tropical rainforest and dry eucalypt forest of the lower valleys. One of the most popular strolls is the Tree Top Walk, a series of nine suspension bridges which takes the visitor high into the rainforest canopy. Two observation decks, the highest 30 meters (100feet) above the ground, with commanding view of life in the tree tops.

In the evening, enjoy a rendezvous with the wildlife and take a walk to Glow Worm Gully, or spotlight around the Guesthouse. Finish off the day with an included dinner.

Overnight Accommodation: O'Reilly's Rainforest Guesthouse - Mountain View Room

Day 2: Lamington National Park / Brisbane (B)
After breakfast, select your own itinerary, with the option of a guided bushwalk, or perhaps a 4WD adventure trip onto the Lamington Plateau. Alternatively, view the ancient Antarctic Beech trees together with a multitude of flora and fauna. Then in the afternoon, opt to return down the range and visit a unique Alpaca farm.

After sightseeing at your leisure, your driver will pick you up mid-afternoon. Travel through Canungra, the old sawmilling town that is now home of the Australian Army's Jungle Warfare Training Centre. Arrive back into Brisbane with a desire to return to the spectacular beauty of the 'Green Mountains.'

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

OReilly's is a great place to stay, rooms, dining, walking tours all fantastic. Should note that you advertise a winery stop which hasn't been offered in three years

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better March 2015

I believe Viator could have done a better job of explaining this tour. We were under the impression from the web site that there was an Itinerary - meaning a sequence of events. In fact the operator JPT delivered us to O'Reilly's as part of a one-day tour and left us as guests. The guest house had a schedule of activities for the month but the 4WD tour suggested on the web site could not be undertaken because we were to be picked up while it was away. We were also unsure as to the time and place we would be picked up and I even rang the office of JPT to be sure we were on the manifest of the driver who would return us to Brisbane. All-in-all O'Reilly's was an enjoyable stay but the organisation of the tour left a lot to be desired.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this January 2014

Disappointed. We spent far more money than we would have buying directly one night accomodation with dinner at O'Reilly and the transfers. Because this "Tour" is nothing more than that. There was no visit to the winery nor wine tasting. We only got a quick (30 minutes) guided walk in the bush once arrived at O'Reilly resort. Not good value for money.
