    What To Expect

    Day 1:(LD) SUNSHINE COAST TO O’REILLY’S RETREAT                              

    Tuesday 03 September  2024                                                                                                        

    Welcome to our tour to the beautiful O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat. With our pickups taken care of we travel to the spectacular hinterlands of Mount Tamborine where we find the Rainforest Skywalk, a spectacular elevated static steel walkway that winds through the canopies of the rainforest. We enjoy morning tea (own expense), before exploring the walkway which gradually descends to the lower canopy. The path follows points of interest including rock pools and waterfalls, with plenty of sheltered rest areas along the way.

    There is also an amazing cantilever, a 40-metre-long span soaring 30 metres above the valley with breathtaking views over the creek and the rainforest canopies below. Finally, the walk returns along the rainforest floor to the Centre. If time permits we stop to browse the myriad of shops at the Gallery Walk. Next, we visit O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyard for a delightful wine tasting and lunch before travelling to Lamington National Park, where we arrive at O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat.

    It’s secluded here, isolated due to the private property being established prior to its declaration as a national park. While it wasn’t Queensland’s first national park, it is the most significant and was regularly referred to as ‘Queensland’s National Park’. World Heritage status was bestowed on Lamington in 1994 in recognition of its high biodiversity and the fact it contains a living museum of the evolutionary steps taken in the development of Australia’s modern-day flora. On arrival, we settle into our accommodation and enjoy the O’Reilly’s hospitality and the beauty of the area. (Lunch at Canungra Valley Vineyard, Dinner at the Retreat)
