Day 2

Window to the Wilderness Rainforest and Wildlife Tour

A short distance beyond the beaches another paradise awaits, Nature's Paradise, the World Heritage Listed Rainforests of Lamington National Park. The trek into the Hinterland region follows the original pioneer's track to the volcanic plateau of Tamborine Mountain. This area of secluded eucalyptus forests provides a private sanctuary for koala, wallabies and other varied wildlife. Enjoy a break for morning tea and chance to check out Gallery Walk on Tamborine Mountain. Your guides, who are renowned for their local knowledge and expertise, escort you on a leisurely bush walk. Discover lush subtropical rainforests with cascading waterfall, learn about the forests unique characteristics, how the Aboriginal people gathered food from the forest floor and the animals and birds that call the area home.

Lunch at a private 400 acre property "Spring Gully", provides the ideal venue for a delicious BBQ lunch with all the trimmings On a hot summer's day, nearby cool waters and rock pools provide the opportunity for a refreshing swim. The tour continues on into the mountainous regions of Lamington National Park (Australia's largest preserved natural stand of subtropical rainforest). At O'Reilly's Plateau, some 3,000 feet above see level, colourful native birds flock around and can be fed. The Treetop Boardwalk through the rainforest canopy offers a bird's eye view of this enchanting area, especially for those who climb the observation tower. Leaving O'Reilly's we take in the magnificent view of mountains and valleys with a 300 degree view from the Gold Coast to Brisbane and around to the great Dividing Range. On the return journey to the Gold Coast, sightings of kangaroos and pretty faced wallabies is common as they emerge form their bush retreats to feed on the lush grass in the cooler part of the day.
