Your Private Rainforest and Wildlife tour begins on the Gold Coast. A short distance beyond the beaches another paradise awaits, Nature's Paradise, the World Heritage Listed Rainforests of Lamington National Park. The trek into the Hinterland region follows the original pioneer's track to the volcanic plateau of Tamborine Mountain. This area of secluded eucalyptus forests provides a private sanctuary for koala, wallabies and other varied wildlife.

A break for morning tea and chance to check out Gallery Walk on the Mountain. Delicious fresh scones or cakes served with jams, cream, tea and coffee.

Time to stretch the legs when guides, who are renowned for their local knowledge and expertise, escort you on a leisurely guided bush walk. Discover lush subtropical rainforests with cascading waterfalls, learn about the forests unique characteristics, how the Aboriginal people gathered food from the forest floor and the animals and birds that call the area home.

From here we head to Lamington National Park but first we check out stunning views from Tamborine's westerly lookout. On a good day we see the local hang Gliders and Para gliders stepping off the steep hillside.

The tour continues on into the mountainous regions of Lamington National Park (Australia's largest preserved natural stand of subtropical rainforest). At O'Reilly's Plateau, some 3,000 feet above sea level, colourful native birds flock around and can be fed. The Treetop Boardwalk through the rainforest canopy offers a bird's eye view of this enchanting area, especially for those who climb the observation tower.

Leaving O'Reilly's we take in the magnificent view of mountains and valleys with a 300 degree view from the Gold Coast to Brisbane and around to the great Dividing Range.

On the return journey to the Gold Coast, sightings of kangaroos and the pretty faced wallabies is common as they emerge from their bush retreats to feed on the lush grass in the cooler part of the day.
