Lamington National Park Tourism & Travel
Lamington National Park Australia
Lamington National Park is about 40 kilometres, 25 miles from Nerang and 110 kilometres, 68.8 miles from Brisbane. Lamington National Park is situated between subtropical and temperate climates so there is a staggering variety of plants, animals and birdlife.
Binna Burra and Green Mountain
Binna Burra and Green Mountain are the two bases of the eastern rim to begin exploration, which can only be done by foot.
A 22 kilometre, 13.8 mile track links Binna Burra and Green Mountain. From the summit region of the track there are exceptional views over the Numinbah Valley to Mt Warning. From this main track, several other branch off to lookouts, waterfalls and rocky creeks.
The western rim is drier with open eucalypt forest, banksias, bottlebrushes and steep peak covered heathlands. This is an area for serious bushwalking.
Lamington National Park Flora and Fauna
The scenery in Lamington National Park is startling. Mountain creeks plummet from sheer-faced cliffs through deep, narrow valleys. Woody vines, ferns and orchids grow beneath a canopy of tall trees in the subtropical tracts.
The diamond python, crimson rosella, Lamington freshwater cray, Australian brush-turkey and brilliant yellow and black male bowerbird all inhabit Lamington National Park.
Lamington National Park Tree Top Walk
Australias first tree top walkway is 160 metres, 175 yards in length and made up of a series of nine suspension bridges, reaching up to 16 metres, 17.5 yards above the rainforest floor, found near OReillys Plateau and the charming family-run guesthouse.
