My daugher (13) and I attended a whole day tour with JPT Tours to Tamborine Mountain and O'Reilly's Rainforest Walk in the Lamington National Park. Our talkative bus driver was friendly and courteous. The first stop was the Alpaca Farm where we were able to have photographs taken with a young alpaca. There was a gift shop where I could buy woollen goods,, plus a snack bar downstairs and a lovely view from the back verandah of beautiful, mountain scenery.
Our next stop was The Gallery Walk on Tamborine Mountain, which is a main street crammed with restaurants and shops filled with arts and crafts, and Australian souvenirs. My only criticism is that we didn't have enough time there. I loved it so much.
Our third stop was O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat (luxury resort hotel) set on top of the mountain. We were able to feed beautiful parrots there (purple and scarlet) by purchasing bird seed from the nearby gift shop (excellent for presents for family back home).
The highlight of my day was the treetop walk. I loved walking along the suspension bridge, high above the rainforest and took heaps of pictures. I just wish someone had told me to wear shorts, not a dress. There is a ladder for you to climb up a hugh tree to reach an amazing viewing platform. My daughter climbed it and told me the view was fantastic. Unfortunately, as I had a dress on, I was unable to climb up to see for myself. We loved our day.
