Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the O'Reilly's Lamington National Park and Tree Top Canopy Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The pick up was on time, the driver was very pleasant. The trip to Lamington was very informative and interesting with enough free time, and the stop at Tambourine Mountain was enjoyable.
The meal at O'Reilly's Guesthouse was very poor, we had the Burger which was mushy and the chips were not crisp, the salad was awful.
Overall the trip was good value with friendly and informative drivers/guide who also spoke Japanese.
I would recommend the trip to anyone but encourage them to take a packed lunch.
We all enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our only regret is that the stops were too short. We wish we had another 30 minutes at the shopping stop, another 15 minutes with the alpacas, and another 30 to 60 minutes at the rainforest. There were so many fun things to see, and we felt a bit hurried. Overall, it was an excellent day and we recommend the tour to anyone considering it.
This trip was done by JPT tours in Gold Coast. Our guide David, was very knowledgeable and told us alot about the Tambourine mountain and Lamington Park. We enjoyed the trip very much.
My daughter and I had a great time! Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and pointed out many things on the way to and from the park. We had plenty of 'free' time to explore on our own.
First bring a plastic slicker because it rains. The guide (Chris) was very knowledgeable and personable. It was not as spectacular as we thought but did see a lot of wildlife including wallabies.
Great trip and great guide with lots of interesting story.
One problem was the use of a very small bus. Cramped and uncomfortable. And disastrous for people like me with motion sickness.
Driver friendly, knowledgable and competent. An interesting tour. Tambourine was interesting. A taster of the National Park Would really need to spend longer to appreciate it. Was not impressed with lunch. Chicken pie barely cooked - not good when serving chicken! Lady next to me had overfried fish - inedible.. Would not recommend café food.
a good experience on the suspension bridge tree top walk but the programme is too short!
Tour was good. Guides were very good, informative. Vehicles were old and not comfortable.
I love the tree top walk, the bird feeding is not so bad, but the tour guide should be more pro active, most of the trip is a bit boring and short of time to explore the whole area. It would be fun to put in a short hiking trip into the rain forest.
The tour staff were friendly, accomodating and knowledgeable but the tour itself involved too much driving on a small cramped bus on windy roads.
The tree top walk was interesting and enjoyable, but provided limited information and was quite short. The bird feeding was fun but that was about all the tour actually offered. It would have been better to simply hire a car and drive up to O'Reilly's myself.
The scenary in and around Lamington National Park is fantastic but the tour did not take advantage of this. There were many times where I would have liked to have stopped to take photos. We did not stop at a single viewing point except the Alpaca farm but this did not offer the best view.
In summary, not enough stops, not enough attractions and too much driving in uncomfortable conditions.
Tree-top walk very short - only 15 mins. Mt Tamborine was a stop in a village with lots of arts and crafts shops, and one didn't even know this was Mt Tamborine. Good to see the alpaca, but I've been to Peru, so hardly a novelty. Long day with little seen.
