The Basics

The two most accessible sections of Lamington National Park are Binna Burra and the Green Mountains. Nature lovers will revel in the park’s diverse flora and fauna, while adventure seekers will delight in the many ways to play at the park.

Go on a guided full-day or overnight tour to get the most out of the park. Most tours start in Brisbane or the Gold Coast and stop at nearby attractions such as Mt. Tamborine and Gallery Walk. Take to the trees in a canopy walk, climb up even higher to get a bird’s-eye view, hike along one of the park’s many trails, or go swimming near a waterfall. Younger visitors will enjoy activities like bird feeding or learning to throw a boomerang.

A great tour especially for nature lovers
The bus was comfortable and air conditioned. The driver, Chris, was very knowlegeable about the places we visited and gave a very interesting commentary about them and the flora and fauna we saw along the way. The 2 hours at Lamington was plenty of time to walk a couple of the paths and enjoy lunch in the superb eatery where you could sit on the deck overlooking the fantastic views. I thoroughly enjoyed the day.

I loved the trip, David our tour guide was excellent. The only thing I would suggest is to possibly bring your own lunch, food is quite expensive, was nice but expensive.

our guide Mr David Peterson was very experienced and knowledgeable, and able to keep up an interesting dialogue and commentary during the trip for us. he has a way with the creatures of the forest, coaxing all the native birds to come for us really made the trip memorable! only wish that at each place, we could stop for a longer period of time. still, i recommend this tour for a great day out from the city.

Our tour guide made this a very memorable excursion. He shared is knowledge of the area, of the animal and of trees. He shared some of his worms to feed the birds. We had some folks on the excursion from Japan and he was fluent in Japanese so he shared the same info with them in Japanese. All-in-all an amazing tour thanks to our guide.

Timely pickup outside Sebel Hotel. Coach to transfer from Brisbane to Gold Coast was a bit grubby and required a good clean. Once we transferred coaches the new one was fine. David the guide and driver was very informative and very knowledgeable. Plenty of time at each stop. He pointed out many interesting things along the way, Alpaca farm and winery was good... we stopped to look at the view at Tambourine mountain...when we got to O’Reillys we had lunch. Food was quite basic and the value was not there as we had prepaid.. pie chips and a salad with too much dressing. It is a great spot and if they lifted their quality it could be a much better experience. The walk through the rainforest was great.. David our guide was very good and he even got the various birds to fly onto our hands and feed off the worms he supplied. The tree walk and 300 year old tree were very interesting,the rainforest was so peaceful and we even saw a small snake!! then we had some free time. Feeding the parrots was a hilight and be sure to buy the bird seed ... David gives you a $1 voucher to use instead if paying the usual $3 or $5.. one tray is enough. The parrots fly onto you head , shoulder and really are a treat. The drive back to BRISBANE was good and David pointed out our various wildlife including some Wallabies. Overall a nice day out and enjoyed the experience - David was a very good guide and whilst you could drive there yourself you would miss out on most of the interesting facts plus the sights. Thank you
