THE TOUR

After leaving Brisbane at 7.45am you will soon start the 4 wheel drive adventure we will stop for morning tea where will be a chance to spot some Koalas and Wallabies, then it will be back in the 4 wheeler and off to the canopy walk.

O'Reilly's Tree Top Canopy Walk allows you to have a 30 minute walk though the rainforest canopy at close range and be surrounded by the many animals and birds that inhabit the tree tops.

The Tree Top Walk is the first of its kind in Australia.  Spanning 180 metres in length it is made up of 9 suspension bridges with much of the walkway being 15 metres above ground.  It's a truly unique way to view this beautiful rainforest.

After your lunch you will be taken on a guided walk though the rainforest the walking in this section can take up to 1 hour bit its all flat no steps.  Once we set off home we may retrace the 4 wheel drive adventure given time. This will give you the real experience of the Australian bush from a new perspective, keep a lookout for Eastern Grey Kangaroo's.

You will arrive back in Brisbane sometime after 4pm.

Come with us to Lamington National Park and see the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia's World Heritage Area, which includes the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world, most of the world's warm temperate rainforest and nearly all of the Antarctic beech Nothofagus moorei cool temperate rainforest. 

Lamington is a jewel in the crown of bushwalking destinations in south-east Queensland.  Dramatic lookouts in Lamington offer views over the Gold Coast, south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales. The rainforest surrounding O'Reilly's provides food and shelter for a myriad of wildlife.

The local mammal list contains 68 native species, ranging in size from the Grey Kangaroos of the valleys to the Common Planigale, a tiny but ferocious carnivore noticeably smaller than a mouse.

The Red-necked Pademelon, Long-nosed Bandicoot, Sugar Glider, Mountain Brushtail and Common Ring-tail possums are regularly seen around the guesthouse.

The frogs of Lamington are particularly interesting, with the highest proportion of rare and endangered species of any of the broader faunal groupings.  Platypus inhabit all of the larger creeks. The local reptiles tally fifty-five lizards and twenty-five snakes, while other creatures include the Lamington Spiny Crayfish, Giant Panda Snails, and many different butterfly species.
