O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat

Tree ferns from Jurassic Park

We walked on the wobbly tree top walk

We got to see the beautiful Regent Bowerbird

Saturday we went to O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat, its a true nature paradise, is situated in Lamington National Park, two hours south of Brisbane. Lamington National Park is World Heritage Listed and is the largest sub-tropical rainforest in Australia. It is home to over 200 bird varieties, 500 waterfalls and has 160 kilometres of walking tracks. The journey is a great 40km drive up through the rain forest. Its at 110m above sealevel so was a fresh 10C compared to 20C in the valley below

O'Reilly's is famous for its Tree Top Walk which offers visitors a close up view of the rainforest canopy and its wildlife.

We had small birds almost hopping on our feet.
