What a privilege and pleasure it is to walk in this pristine Queensland wilderness. The Great Walk takes 3 full days and needs lots of careful planning. You could do it in 4 separate walks. A group of 3 or 4 is recommended as accidents...More

Walking with a small group organised by International Park Tours Beechmont. Just really bad luck as it poured rain and we were all covered in leech bites. Have done this walk before in perfect conditions. Win some, lose some!

this walk is a great way to spend an hour as part of a day's outing to lamington national park as it incorporates a section through the treetops and a good look at the park features.

Highly recommend coming here while in Brisbane. The ride up is steep and windy. If you are from the U.S. I caution against driving. The roads are extremely narrow and you are driving on the wrong side. Margin for error is very small. You are...More
