We had a very enjoyable day around Lamington and Tamborine Mountain. Our guide, Roy, was a very friendly and engaging personality who brought to life the way the area had been developed over the years and highlighted the development of the national park structure and how it works with local landowners. The highlights were the off-road section where we spotted wild koalas. Later in the day we saw kangaroos and wallabies and then we fed the wild parrots on the O'Reilly property, finishing off with a visit to a bat colony. The pace of the tour was good with ample time in-between visits for tea and lunch. We highly recommend that anybody who visits this part of Queensland should try this tour.

had excellent guide, Roid. Made the whole day special , made special effort to find as many animals as possible, took extra time to see everything. Cooked great lunch. Really enjoyed the 4WD, sometimes 4wd is not even close to 4wd experience but this one was great. We have been 4WD trips for many many years. As husband is deceased did not think I would get to do that again. Just one fun day
