Overview

Highlights

  • Walk through lush untouched World heritage Gondwana rainforest, along the rim of an ancient eroded volcano
  • A mysterious melting pot of fauna and flora including outstanding bird life like the striking regent bowerbird
  • Hike the border track through pristine rainforests, rivers, waterfalls and birdlife
  • Be pampered in luxury accommodations

Short Description

Discover magnificent World Heritage subtropical rainforests and traverse a landscape as old as the dinosaurs on this mesmerising walk in the Gold Coast Hinterland. Massive strangler figs, ancient Antarctic beech, red cedar, rosewood and booyongs tower overhead whilst hundreds of different species of palms, vines, ferns and orchids flourish beneath.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Itinerary

Day 1: Coolangatta - Binna Burra

Travel from Coolangatta to Binna Burra stopping in Springbrook National Park along the way. Enjoy a delightful circuit walk followed by a visit to Purlingbrook Falls.

Day 2: Coomera Circuit

You will have a choice of two circuit walks today of varying difficulties. Both circuits will pass through several vegetation types. Waterfalls are also aplenty today on either circuit choice. Today’s tracks will criss-crosses rainforest creeks for much of the day, passing many waterfalls.

Day 3: Daves Creek Circuit

Today we will walk on the Hinterland Great Walk as we head down into the Numinbah Valley. This track takes you to the remote eastern escarpment for great views into the Valley.

Day 4: Lamington Traverse

Another full day of hiking, this time it's the Lamington Traverse. Walk across the rainforest plateau on the Border Track to your accommodation at O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat - at 25km it's a long way but the route is almost flat and the going is easy. The track emerges from the subtropical rainforest at several panoramic escarpment lookouts along the way.

Day 5: Moran Falls & Canungra Creek

Your morning walk offers an excellent introduction to the unique flora and fauna of the area. Hug the "Wishing Tree" and walk to stunning Moran Falls. After lunch at the café, the afternoon walk criss-crosses pretty Canungra Creek. Walk through lush sub-tropical rainforest with impressive stands of brush box and piccabeen palms. Climb the giant fig tree and explore the different levels of the rainforest on the Tree Tops Walk. Finish the day with a soak in the heated outdoor spa pool.

Day 6: return to Gold Coast

After breakfast you'll enjoy a bird walk guided by a local expert before travelling back to the Gold Coast.

Great support and service from Discover The World in making all of the arrangements for our Tailor Made Norwegian Fjord holiday; everything went like clockwork....apart from Avis car hire who gave us a car which had an oil problem! Even then, and when Avis were about as much use as a chocolate teapot, Discover The World helped us get it sorted out quickly.

We had an amazing trip to Sweden with Discover The World. The booking was easy with a real person who had experienced the trip himself and was able to offer proper advice. 3 1/2 hours from London to Kiruna - and a marvellous travel rep (Maddie) who really looked after us. I was a bit nervous with 2 children staying in the Ice Hotel (1 night) but need not have been worried - it was fantastic and I am so glad we did it. The staff at Ice Hotel are really helpful and knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. We had 3 further nights in the warm accommodation which was perfect. The Husky safari was a really incredible day as was the snowmobiling safari and for any ladies out there who would be a bit worried about driving the snowmobile - don't be. I had 1 child on the back of mine and 1 in the trailer with the guide (she was also fantastic). I felt safe at all times and would highly recommend this trip. Since we have been back my girls continuously talk about the trip and my youngest did a school presentation about it as well. This is a real bucket list trip and we will definitely be back. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Additional Information:

The Gold Coast Hinterland area is purported to be the largest area of protected subtropical rainforest in the world, with sizeable areas of warm temperate rainforest and nearly all of Australia's remaining Antarctic beech cool temperate rainforest. This is an untouched environment where new plants are being found, classified and named even today.

More than 160 species of sub-tropical birds will keep everyone engrossed. Many of them are easy to see and unafraid of people. The striking black and yellow regent bower bird is always a favourite. Red-necked pademelons, possums and sugar gliders are commonly seen around the lodges in the evenings.

The walking near O'Reilly's and Binna Burra is mostly easy on well graded tracks. This trip operates with two guides so we can offer easier and harder walk options along the way.
