A rainforest oasis located only 90mins inland from the busy Gold Coast, World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park transports the visitor into another world.
Grand mountain vistas, breathtaking waterfalls and an amazing variety of bird and plant life make this park a must-see on any bucket list.
Part of the Scenic Rim – a chain of impressive mountains, plateaus and peaks in south-east Queensland – the park is home to lush subtropical rainforest, Antarctic beech trees, hoop pines and montane heath.
Many plants are unique and found nowhere else in the world. The vast network of walking tracks along the McPherson Range, which is situated 900m above sea level, is the perfect way to explore this stunning landscape.
Lamington NP, 110km south of Brisbane, consists of two sections: Green Mountains and Binna Burra.
The Green Mountains section has a national park campground, which is suitable for walk-in camping, campervans and motorhomes. Campervan site 5 is the only spot suitable for a camper trailer and must be pre-booked.
Facilities include hot showers, toilets, taps and bins – generators are not allowed.
