We spent three days and two night in Lamington National Park, part of the World Heritage listing ‘Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves’. A landscape characterised by rugged mountain scenery, subtropical rainforest, fern gullies, wildflower heaths and Queensland’s best bushwalking trails.
We had an amazing 3 days trekking the jungle and seeing some varied wildlife – satin and regent bowerbirds, pademelons (a type of small wallaby) and rare and threatened species such as the coxens fig parrot and eastern bristlebord. Thankfully, the only species that posed any danger were snakes and we seen none.
Lamington has around 160km of walking tracks within the park. Our favourites were the tree-top canopy and the 21km Border Track circuit that follows the dividing range between NSW and Queensland. In all we walked a good 20hrs. We seen the most amazing creatures, waterfalls and trees. You’ll see a great shot of me sitting on a waterfall edge – where we shouldn’t have been – looking down was the most amazing adrenalin rush ever!
