Day 3

Gold Coast – Lamington National Park

Breakfast at the hotel.  We head to Tamborine Mountain, which sits on the edge of the escarpment behind the Gold Coast. Tamborine Mountain is really a collective term for a number of small villages and settlements stretching along the ridge of the mountain range. We enjoy the beautiful views which exist on both sides of the ranges and have our morning tea break in one of the villages. From here, we drive through Canungra, a small, thriving township at the southern end of the Tamborine Mountain National Park (the town describes itself as the ‘Gateway to the Mountains’) and up into the Lamington National Park. The O’Reilly Family has been welcoming people to their mountain home of rainforests, waterfalls and wildlife for over 80 years. In the afternoon enjoy leisure time.
