What You Can Expect

O'Reilly's Lamington National Park and Treetop Canopy Tour

O'Reilly's Lamington National Park

Part of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Godwana Rainforests of Australia, Lamington National Park is a delightful destination for exploring Queensland’s subtropical beauty. Your full-day tour begins with pickup at your Brisbane or Gold Coast hotel and a scenic drive to the park. Along the way, stop at the Gallery Walk to chance to stretch your legs and browse unique local arts and crafts shops, and admire sprawling views of the surrounding forest and Pacific Ocean from the top of Mt Tambourine.

Your base camp for the day is O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat — a family-owned nature resort in the heart of Lamington National Park. Soak up the pristine surroundings of the Gold Coast hinterland and enjoy a natural soundtrack of bird calls during 2.5 hours of leisure time at the retreat.

Experience one of O’Reilly’s most popular activities with a treetop canopy walk. Stroll across nine footbridges suspended 45 feet (16 meters) in the air for a unique perspective of the subtropical rain forest. A guide will point out highlights of the diverse ecosystem and help identify unique species of flora and fauna.

Back on the ground, have an up-close encounter with native bird species like bowerbirds, wedge tailed-eagles, Albert lyrebirds and flocks of vibrant red-and-green king parrots during a guided bird feeding. These wild wonders may peck seed straight from your hand! You can also bush walk among the property’s beautiful trail system.

If you selected the lunch option at booking, savor a freshly prepared lunch at O’Reilly’s inviting on-site café. Snacks and O’Reilly’s estate-made wines are also available to purchase à la carte.

After departing the retreat, stop at a local alpaca farm to meet the friendly, furry creatures and take advantages of some great photo ops. Your full-day tour concludes with drop-off back at your Brisbane or Gold Coast hotel.

Wonderful and very informative day trip! The views on Tamborine and Lamington lookouts are spectacular our guide is very kind and knowledgeable and showed us wallabies and local birdlife as we saw them. I have several great photos of the lovely robin.
Recommend to nature lovers and photographers, or any other who want to enjoy a relaxing day in the mountains.

The meeting place was very easy to find. The group was mixed, with some people staying at O'Reilly's overnight and some of us as daytrippers. The tour guide provided a lot of information about the flora and fauna, and we saw lots of birds. There is some independent time for lunch and additional hiking/bird feeding at O'Reilley's, before gathering at the bus and heading back to the city.

This is a long trip out of Brisbane. Once you get off the shuttle bus and away from the highway the day improves. Our guide/driver was excellent and very knowledgeable. I am just sorry I cannot recall his name. Chris, I think. I was glad of the stop at Gallery Walk to get a decent coffee and a cake - I would advise you get food here as the food at the park is not brilliant. We pre booked the optional lunch, which was off a poor standard. Take your own food. I am not a shopper so the short stop was adequate and there is a long drive ahead. The landscape you drive through is stunning, very windy roads and so glad I was not driving. The tree top canopy walk is not to be missed. I learned so much about the history of this country and about the wildlife on this trip. Seeing the bird that collect blue things in its bower was a bonus. On the drive down we saw pretty faced wallabies. All in all an excellent day out.

Great day trip from Brisbane. It was all very beautiful! I fed the birds, ate a nice lunch, saw some great overlooks, and the Tree Top Canopy was wonderful! I enjoyed the alpaca farm. The tour guide was great! Saw lots of wallabies, too! I recommend this day tour!
