Lamington National Park

Lamington National Park is just a short distance from Tamborine Mountain. It is the largest preserved subtropical rainforest in Australia and features spectacular scenery as well as a wide range of bird species.

Popular places to visit around the Lamington National Park include Binna Burra and Green Mountains, which you can get to from Tamborine. Around this section, there are a number of unique walking trails. Green Mountains offer a tree top trail which has great views across the surrounding landscape. There is also a slightly longer 24km walk which links the two places, if you would prefer.

There are also plenty of other walking tracks throughout the Lamington National Park ranging from easy walking tracks to more difficult tracks. The walking tracks pass some beautiful waterfalls as well as some famous features including Aboriginal Cooking Caves, Coomera Gorge, Echo Point, Mount Merino and Picnic Rock.

Bryon Bay

Why not take a day trip to Byron Bay, a small coastal village in the far north east of New South Wales. The resident population swells by three or four times in the popular summer holidays and some other peak times during the year. Shop around for great deals during off-peak times!

Numinbah Valley

Head from the township of Numinbah north through the Numinbah Valley for some seriously scenic adventures.

Named after the Aboriginal word “Nyummin” meaning hold tight country, the narrow valley was thought to hold the two mountains together.
