Taking three teenage grandsons away for a week can be fraught ... But O'Reilly's really worked for us. We chose to book a Villa and self-cater for some meals. This was a great decision. Our three bedrooms all ensuite were great. The three boys loved the free wifi - about as much as they loved the various events they chose...

We were staying at O'Reilly's for one night, arrived on a Saturday and got welcomed by a nice gentleman at reception. Our room was not ready which was fine as guaranteed check in is at 2pm. He explained us the facilities and told us he will give us a call once the room is ready. We decided to go to...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa and were delighted with the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation. The activities at the resort were high quality and extremely interesting, many of which would be unique in nature. The staff were friendly and co-operative.

My partner and I just spent the weekend at O'Reilly's. We stayed in the 1 bedroom valley view villa which was absolutely beautiful. The spa on the deck is a fantastic way to wind down after a hard bush walk! What I love most about O'Reilly's is the family aspect and homely feel the place offers its guests. They have...

A brilliant week in a lodge hanging over the clift. The drive up is an experience and test on your nerves. So many great points. The lodge had views of the valley and beyond for hundres of miles. It felt like you were in the clouds. Quality spacious lodge with everything you need for a family of 4. Jacuzzi tub...

I love this resort. Our room had no tv which was fantastic to be able to focus on the wildlife and each other. There was so much to do if you love nature and walking in the rainforest. The sunsets were amazing and the food in the restaurant was quite nice too. The pool is small but sufficient to get...

We, 4 adults and a baby stayed in a villa for a long weekend. To say that I could live in the 2 bedroom/2 bathroom villa is an understatement.

Great location with fantastic views...ruined by a lunch that consisted of soggy chips and cold and stale burger buns...probably the worst meal I've ever paid for. Literally have never posted a meal review on any website, but this place was exceptional...in the worst possible way. Is there a zero star rating??

Hello O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat team,

My best friend is getting married mid May 2017 and I was hoping to plan her girls getaway the week before her and her partner tie the knot. We were hoping to enjoy a relaxing weekend of day trekking, nature watching and catching up over wine before the big day. I was looking into accomodation around the Lamington National Park region and your retreat looks very elegant with views that are simply breathtaking! I would love to find out more about the requirements and limitations of a weekend stay, and also ask more about the local activities you would recommend nearby.

Firstly, we would have around 15 people interested in coming. What accomodation could you recommend for us so we stay together as much as possible (self-catered villas perhaps). As we are quite an outdoorsy bunch, we would each have the capacity to roll out our own personal swags to cater for those not utilising the bedrooms. So my first question would be what would be your limitations for maximum number of guests. The length of stay we would like to be there for is 3 nights, potentially around Saturday 6th, Sunday 7th and Monday 8th of May, however we would be flexible for two days before or after if those dates are unavailable.

Secondly, we would love to do as many outdoor activities as possible, so I was hoping to get an idea of local guides/companies you could recommend for trekking and nature watching that is in close proximity to the house, and any other interesting things you think would be good for our group size. Thank you so very much for your time and consideration, I would welcome a personal message with a reply sent here or via email if possible. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards,

Samantha Barnett
