Lamington National Park Holidays

Set within the Gold Coast Hinterland and in the Border Ranges, Lamington National Park is located on the northern side of the Tweed volcano and is the largest preserved subtropical rainforest in Australia.

Lamington National Park is divided into two areas, Green Mountains and Binna Burra. Both offer spectacular walking trails which pass some of the renowned sites of waterfalls, Aboriginal cooking caves, Coomera Gorge, Echo Point and Picnic Rock. The Border Track connects the two sections of the park and is a moderately engertic walk through lush rainforests, home to many ancient and rare flowering plants. Maps of the park and it’s walking trails are readily available in the gift shop, clearly showing the difficulty of each trail and the sights to be seen.

Experience unique walking trails

 

Experienced walkers in the Green Mountains area can take the Stinson Walk; a twelve hour, 35 kilometre hike which follows in the footsteps of Bernard O’Reilly on his rescue mission for survivors of the Stinson plane crash. For the less experienced walker, the Tree Top Trail is well recommended. A series of suspension bridges through the trees boast unique sights of flower and fruit covered rainforest canopies – truly a once in a lifetime experience. Many of the Green Mountains walks also offer dramatic look out points which afford views over the Gold Coast, south east Queensland and northern New South Wales.

Lamington National Park’s dramatic landscape of ridges and valleys provides a home to over 120 species of birds – including the largest collection of sub-tropical birds in Australia. If you keep an eye out, it’s easy to spot a huge variety of different coloured birds throughout the rainforest, although the keen birdwatcher will have to delve a little deeper into the trees to spot the rarer and more timid species.
