Every day city life could dampen any spirit. Endless rush hours and fighting your way into a maze of crowds, horns blowing, traffic jams- these could very well speed up anyone’s stress level. What about the breath of wilderness for a change! The smell of fresh ground and that feel of calmness in the woods? The sounds of birds like you have never heard them sing before! The sight of animals you could only enjoy on your TV screen. That tranquility you longed for that has almost lost its meaning. There is a place hidden in the heart of the Lamington National Park, only 2-hour drive south of Brisbane and some 90 minutes by West from the Gold Coast. Somewhere in the middle is the world of O’Reilly’s Tree Top Walk!
O’Reilly’s Tree Top Walk is a perfect destination for the whole family, romantic couples, adventurers, solo travellers, in short, it is for everyone.
HOW TO GET THERE:
The trail from Nerang heading to O’Reilly’s Tree Top Walk is established. You can do it yourself by following the signs along the way heading to Canungra. Take the first left turn to Kidston Street just a few meters away from Canungra Motel.
The first thing you want to do when you get here is to explore this natural wonderland. There are nine suspension bridges that will lead you deeper into the rain forest canopy overlooking sometimes smog-like misty scenery especially during warm days. Two viewing decks are provided, with the taller one at 100ft, for a better view of the surrounding area.
