Eco Activities

Since O'Reilly's opened its doors for Easter 1926, our Discovery Program has been a real highlight for our guests. The program is also an integral part of O'Reilly's commitment to sharing knowledge and awareness of the World Heritage Lamington National Park and its unique inhabitants.

Guests regularly comment on how amazed they are by how much they see and learn when they choose to join one of our Discovery guides. We show you things you would never have found on your own, and elaborate on these findings with fascinating insights into the intricacies of the rainforest ecosystem. We encourage you to get involved where your knowledge, experience and enjoyment will be enriched, and you'll be sure to meet some interesting characters from both the human and animal worlds.

"Birds of Prey" flight show

See awesome aerial predators including owls, falcons and eagles in free flight as they perform amazing displays of natural aerobatics.

'Wildlife Encounter' show

In addition to this range of birds, O’Reilly’s also hosts the Wildlife Encounter experience, an interactive experience that lets guests get up close and personal with animals.

One-on-One Bird of Prey Encounters

Experience the magic of a hands on session with Australia's largest bird of prey, the Wedge-tailed Eagle or the world's fastest animal the Peregrine Falcon. You can't get much closer to nature than this!

 

Segway Tours

Segway Safari Tours run daily (subject to availability) and is the only Segway Guided Tour that is surrounded by World Heritage listed Lamington National Park.

Guided Tours

Guests at O'Reilly's can get even more out of their stay in Lamington National Park by hiring a private guide to personally take them through the most productive areas. There is no substitute for local knowledge.

Eco Rangers Kids Activities

O'Reilly's Eco Rangers program is a fun creative way for children aged four and over to spend their time at O'Reilly's, as well as a nice opportunity for parents to relax!

 

Rainforest Walks

Lamington is a jewel in the crown of Rainforest bushwalking destinations in south-east Queensland. It contains over 160 km of graded walking paths and a similar distance of walking trails that lead to lookouts, waterfalls and some of Queensland's most significant wilderness.

O'Reilly's Tree Top Walk

Walk through a canopy of flowering and fruiting trees covered by vines whilst you explore the epiphytic orchids and ferns surrounded by the many birds and animals that inhabit the tree tops.

 

Flying Fox

An exhilarating way to energise your group. Feel the wind in your face and fear in your heart as you zip down the 180m cable and contemplate the forest floor 25 metres below. Running daily this 2 hr adventure suits young and old and is a fantastic way to get the blood pumping or wear out the kids as they run back up the hill to fly again.
