Lush rainforests, ancient trees, spectacular views, extensive walking tracks, exceptional ecological importance and natural beauty make this World Heritage-listed park an outstanding place to visit.
Lamington National Park boasts extensive walking tracks along the McPherson Range, which allow visitors to explore the area's forests, creeks and waterfalls. Dramatic lookouts afford views over the Gold Coast, south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales. Lamington is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, which includes the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world. As the Border Track to Mount Bithongabel climbs 240 metres, observe the change from subtropical to temperate forest. Good examples of Antarctic Beech, a cool temperate species, are growing in the area around Mount Bithongabel. The view from Bithongabel Lookout allows one to trace Bernard O'Reilly's journey when searching for the lost Stinson in 1937, along the McPherson Range to the West as far as Mount Throakban. Continue past some large tree ferns on the left to Toolona Lookout where a view can be obtained of Mount Warning and Murwillumbah.
Green Mountains, in the hinterland of the Gold Coast and part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, features lush rainforests, ancient trees and spectacular views. This section of Lamington National Park is located on the western side of the Lamington Plateau. Densely-forested ranges and valleys conceal the area's ancient volcanic origins and dramatic lookouts afford views over the southern edge of the Scenic Rim, a chain of mountains stretching from the Gold Coast hinterland to Mount Mistake. Get away and be at one with nature as you camp at the park's Green Mountain camping area. Choose from the many half-day or full-day walks that explore the park's best attractions. In the picnic area, take photos of crimson rosellas. On the Python Rock track, listen for the masked mountain frog's popping call. Enjoy excellent views of Morans Falls and Morans Creek gorge on the Morans falls track. Spot leaf-tailed geckos on the West Canungra Creek track. Set out on a full day walk along the Border track or Mount Merino track for outstanding views. Look for the regent bowerbird, rufous scrub-bird and Antarctic beech tree, ancient species that have survived since prehistoric times.
Situated on the banks of the Canungra Creek in the Gold Coast Hinterland, O'Reilly's Canungra Valley Vineyards is a boutique vineyard dedicated to the enjoyment of fine food and wine. Enjoy a glass of award-winning wine, a delicious meal or High Tea on the verandah of the historic Queenslander homestead or picnic by the creek under the shade of the Silky Oaks. Owned and operated by the O'Reilly family, the property features a grand ballroom, intimate dining rooms, sweeping verandahs and a cedar cellar door bar. O'Reilly's Canungra Valley Vineyards produce three wine ranges: Picnic, Platypus Play and O'Reilly's Generations Reserve Series. They have named their premium range after members of the O'Reilly family, which as pioneers of O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat in nearby Lamington National Park, are an icon in the area. Open seven days a week, guests are free to explore the property and creek, which is home to a family of platypus. The vineyard provides the perfect venue for casual picnic basket, social group outing, off-site function venue or a unique wedding venue.
