Lamington National Park
A world of ancient rainforest mysteries
Immerse yourself in the grandeur of Lamington National Park, where densely-forested ranges and valleys conceal the area’s ancient volcanic origins. Part of the World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, this is one of Queensland’s best national parks and a bushwalking ‘mecca’, with an extensive network of trails of varying lengths and difficulty waiting to be explored by bush walking enthusiasts from around the world. Enjoy early morning bird-watching of some of Australia’s most iconic species with professional guides, feel alive as you take a challenging full-day hike through the spectacular McPherson Range or experience the wonder of a nocturnal wildlife encounter in this mysterious rainforest environment. Treat yourself to a stay at one of two world-renowned eco-lodges in Binna Burra and Green Mountains sections of the park and join in one of the many workshops, guided walks and special activities for families and kids run by professional guides. Or simply get away and be at one with nature as you camp at the park’s Green Mountain camping area.
