Family Adventures at O’Reilly’s Treetop Walk

 

The O’Reilly’s Treetops Walk is located at Lamington Nation Park in Queensland. It is an awesome hour and a half drive from the Gold Coast. This place offers a relaxing day walking and exploring for a family, and it’s free – that’s always a bonus!

Driving up the mountain is an adventure in itself. The views become more amazing the higher you go! It is an interesting road, it becomes very narrow in parts, with plenty of places to pull over to allow oncoming traffic to get past.

Once you reach the summit, the road becomes more like a driveway, under a canopy of trees. I thought it was heaps of fun!

The walk itself is really easy. We had lots of fun with all the cuzzy’s. The kids weren’t scared, but Aunty Nat wasn’t so keen on the heights (most of the bridge is 15 metres above ground). The suspension bridges felt really safe – we weren’t scared!

We made the trip during the Easter Break in April. It was a nice temperature, and it wasn’t crowded. We noticed a camp ground and a lodge are up there. It could make for a really fun-filled weekend away! It seemed like there is a lot to do, you can check out the O’Reilly’s Activities and Events page to see all the exciting things you can do, that’s us next time, we are especially looking forward to giving the Flying Fox a go!
