After last year’s devastating bushfires in May followed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the formally known as Green Mountains campground, reopen September 18, 2020 as O’Reilly’s Campground.
Now privately managed by O’Reilly’s Forest Retreat and after six months of building and development the upgrade for this new world class ecotourism attraction includes:
- A new amenities building, communal camp kitchen and hub with stunning views overlooking the McPherson Range, with pathways and ramping to enable accessibility for all guests
- 21 recreational vehicle sites and 24 campsites
- 17 safari tents with ensuite pods and two of them with disabled access
- Creation of a fire pit and gathering area
- Water is to be recycled back through the toilet systems.
The laundry is situated in the Main Guest House. Power is available in the safari huts. You can purchase firewood at the cafe, you are not allowed to collect wood from the National Park. Linen is for hire.
After Cyclone Debbie, millions have been spent on access, and now road conditions are as good as they have ever been. The winding and often narrow bitumen road from Canungra requires care and takes at least 50 minutes. This road is unsuitable for recreational vehicles (RVs) longer than 4m and vehicles towing caravans and camper trailers.
Lamington National Park is part of Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, there’s bushwalking tracks, lookouts, picnic areas and a tree top walk. You can check out over 500 waterfalls in the surrounds, with gorges and water holes in the National Park – so bring your togs!
Lamington is separated into the Green Mountains section, located on the western side of the Lamington Plateau with the rest of the park to the east, called the Binna Burra section.
Bookings are now open with O’Reilly’s Forest Retreat, you can find more information on our new Camps Australia Wide App, due out soon!
