Green Mountains section of Lamington National Park, in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, features lush rainforests, ancient trees and spectacular views. Densely-forested ranges and valleys conceal the area’s ancient volcanic origins and dramatic lookouts afford views over the southern edge of the Scenic Rim.
Lamington is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, which includes the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world, most of the world’s warm temperate rainforest and nearly all of the Antarctic beech cool temperate rainforest.
Choose from the many half-day or full-day walks that explore the park. On the Python Rock track, listen for the masked mountain frog’s popping call. Enjoy views of Morans Falls and Morans Creek gorge on the Morans falls track. Spot leaf-tailed geckos on the West Canungra Creek track. Set out on a full day walk along the Border track or Mount Merino track for outstanding views.
A privately-operated mountain retreat and camping site, Segway tours and zipline are also offered here.
