Get in touch with nature on your trip to Brisbane. The Lamington National Park is a beautiful part of the world. It is a World Heritage protected site and home to O’Reilly’s Treetop Walk. Located less than two hours from Brisbane, you’ll see when you arrive and embark upon the exhilarating walk, that the drive in your Hertz Brisbane Airport rental car was worth it.
The Tree Top Walk is a walking track through Lamington National Park in the Gold Coast Hinterland. It is located within the O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat property, which is privately owned land.
The suspended track allows you to walk high up in the canopy of the rainforest amongst the vine-covered trees and birds and animals which live in the treetops. Continuing on for 180 metres, the track is made up of nine suspension bridges 15 metres above the ground. If you are adventurous enough, you can climb ladders to the observation decks which are located even higher than the track. 30 metres above the ground, you’ll have a breathtaking view of the rainforest below from these crows nest type platforms. You’ll also be able to take a closer look at the orchids and ferns growing on the trees from these decks.
Ultimately, the Tree Top Walk gives you the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Lamington National Park from above the ground. While you’re there, you can also enjoy Lamington National Park from the ground. Take your time to wander through the stunning surroundings and observe the many waterfalls, Antarctic beech trees which are over 5,000 years old, endangered tropical orchids and the multitudes of native flora and fauna.
There are plenty of other things to do in the area, if you are looking to make the most of the drive to the area. Other activities include guided tours, segway tours, rainforest walks and wild life encounter shows.
A cafe and gift shop is located at O’Reilly’s Resort, offering refreshments and souvenirs.
There are no age or height restrictions for the Tree Top Walk. If you are travelling with children, however, it’s recommended that they are supervised.
O’Reilly’s Tree Top Walk is absolutely FREE.
