Lamington National Park is a jewel in the crown of rainforest bushwalking destinations in Queensland. It contains over 320 kms of walking tracks that lead to spectacular lookouts, waterfalls and some of Queensland’s most significant wilderness areas. Lamington National Park is nearly 1000 metres above sea level which means not only that the temperature is 5-8 degrees cooler than Brisbane or the Gold Coast, but that the weather is changeable. So no matter what time of year you visit, pack a jumper and some wet weather gear.
When the south-east wind blows, shower activity increases as you approach the crest of the McPherson Range and decreases to the north of O’Reilly’s. The accompanying low cloud blocks out the view on top of the range making the border walks less attractive under these conditions. The higher elevation here means lower temperatures, so take something warm to wear. Summer rains bring leeches. It is wise to take some repellent with you.
Lamington National Park is attracting an increasing number of people each year and the parks continued well being is dependent on the goodwill of the people who visit them.
Lamington National Park is made up of two sections: Green Mountains and Binna Burra. Green Mountains section is located on the western side of the Lamington Plateau, and wraps around O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat.
