O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat

Retreat and Lodges

Explore World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park from multi-award winning O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat nestled in the iconic Gold Coast hinterland (Queensland, Australia). Proudly operated by passionate third-generation O’Reilly family members whose ancestors pioneered eco tourism in Australia in 1926.

With family-friendly things to see and do aplenty, opt for guided bird walks, animal shows and the famed Tree Top Walk. Plus, test your skills on an off road two-wheeled Segway tour through creek crossings to Morans Falls, followed by blissing out in the Gold Coast’s Lost World Day Spa – equipped with a sublime couples suite and 25-metre wet edge infinity lap pool with a separate children’s area.

Stay in cosy serviced accommodation at the Retreat with expansive views overlooking the western McPherson Ranges, or one of 48 self-contained and architecturally designed Villas perched unobtrusively onto the sloping hillside.
