What you can expect

Explore the highlights of the Gold Coast hinterland and discover the natural beauty of Lamington National Park, O'Reilly’s and Canungra on this guided experience.

Your day begins with a relaxed drive through the Canungra Valley. We take a brief stop in Canungra where you can purchase a hot beverage. Light refreshments are offered before continuing our journey from the valley floor to the summit of World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park, part of the largest continuous, subtropical rainforest anywhere on earth. Upon arrival at O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat your guide will explain the O’Reilly’s amazing history including the Stinson plane crash. Experience a birds eye view on the tree top walk consisting of 9 suspension bridges 16 metres above ground. A special wildlife experience awaits once you return, grab your camera out and get a shot of the wild King Parrots or Crimson Rosellas feeding from your plate!

Our next stop is Kamarun lookout which provides stunning 300-degree views, from the Gold Coast to Brisbane.

When visiting the Scenic Rim, a stop at a vineyard is a must. O’Reilly’s own Canungra Valley Vineyard set beside a mountain stream gives you the chance to check out the vineyard, feed Alpacas and enjoy a glass of sparkling wine.

Lunch options are available for purchase at either O’Reilly’s or Canungra Valley Vineyard. Remove the hassle of driving and experience this ECO certified tour with the Gold Coast’s most experienced rainforest tour operator.

Really great day out. Thoroughly recommend taking this tour.

We had a truly fabulous day out with Mark our driver. We were very lucky as we were the only 2 people on the tour. Mark was very knowledgeable and we chatted about all sorts of different things. It was like a day out with a friend. The scenery sights, sounds and places he took us to were beautiful and feeding the wild birds at O'Reillys was a great experience. We cannot thank Mark enough for making our day truly memorable.

Fresh air and astonishing scenery, topped up with nice wine!

We had a great day enjoying our time at the Lamington National Park with guidance of the joyful and friendly guide, Eddy. Mingled with Rosellas and King Parrots, had a glass of nice wine at the end of the trip and saw some wild whiptail wallabies along the way. Definitely worth it!

Great evening with glow worms and exciting night walk into the rainforest!

We had a great evening with the guidance of Marc, our awesome guide who is very knowledgeable and keen to share his experience with all of us. Not only glow worms, we also saw very starry sky, Marc spotted a trapdoor spider den and shared some survivors skills with us along the way. It’s a very fruitful trip!
