Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your day trip begins with pickup at Gold Coast or Brisbane hotels by minivan for the drive to Lamington National Park. Upon arrival at the park, get ready for your hike by fueling up with snacks (bring your own) and listening to your guide’s introduction to your hiking route, including a few safety tips. (See the Itinerary section for details about the hike to Picnic Rock and Elabana Falls).

    Then set off on your hike, wandering through Lamington’s lush, UNESCO–listed rain forest landscape made up of pine trees, ferns, and flowering plants, all remains of the ancient Gondwanan forests that once blanketed Australia. In the afternoon, arrive at O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat, where you can visit the cafe to purchase lunch (own expense).

    After lunch, enjoy a little free time to check out the gift shop, feed the local birds or just admire the scenery from your location in the middle of the park. From O’Reilly’s, drive back down the mountain and then onto your hotel for drop-off.

    Thank you for coming on our Lamington Day Tour, we couldn't agree more about Lamington being one of the best. It's nice to know you enjoyed the rain, the plants would share the same view. The bower is really something special, we're lucky to have it nice and close to the path. Enjoy the rest of your time in Brisbane!

    We took the Elabana & Box Forest Falls hike. Not exactly what we booked -- we were pleasantly surprised on our pickup that we received a free upgrade. The forest was immensely beautiful. The hike was off the beaten track. We saw almost no one all day. One could walk around
