Walk On Clouds At The Lamington National Park’s Tree Top Walk In Brisbane

Brisbane’s Lamington National Park is a registered park with the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. The park is a one of a kind haven that is certainly a hiker’s delight. It offers beautiful scenes, waterfalls, rich flora, fauna, a perspective in to tribal culture and a beautifully unique walkway that can literally make you feel as if you are on top of the clouds.

Lamington-National-ParkWhy you should visit the Lamington National Park

The park is situated on the northern side of the Tweed Volcano, which was active around 23 million years ago.  It has one of the most diverse spread of vegetations in the world. The plants such as Pittosporum, lamington peach Myrtle, Mt. Merino eyebright and everlasting daisy are unique as they are found specifically in this area and nowhere else in the world. These are subalpine relic species, which have thrived since the last ice age.

Lamington Park also boasts of a rich variety of fauna for the visitors to experience on their trip. Extremely rare species of Coxen’s Fig Parrot, Albert’s Lyebird and the Birdwing butterfly of Richmond can be spotted in this region. If you are lucky, you can also spot the Large-eared pied bat or even platypus at the edge of the forest.

The park also houses a record number of waterfalls, approximately 500 there. The Elabana and Running Creek offer the most scenic waterfall tours in the forests. They fall in to the box canyon creating a spectacular view for visitors. You can take a hiking tour up to this area.

The ultimate adventure in the park is of course the famous ™Reilly’€™s Tree Top Walk. It is a 180-metre walkway created with 9 suspension bridges. The entire walkway is situated 15 metres above the ground and it is literally walking through the treetops of the rainforest canopy. You can find small profiles of the ethnic flora to identify the species that you are looking at. You will also get the chance to get close to the epiphytic orchids growing on the trees. You can reach the walk through the Booyang Walk.  This is a boardwalk built to give the 300m access to the tree top walk from the guesthouse in the Lamington Park.
