The O'Reilly's Rainforest Guesthouse Experience
Since 1926, the O'Reilly's brand of country hospitality makes this a holiday destination for every generation and famous world-wide. Located in the Hinterland beyond the Gold Coast in Southern Queensland, O'Reilly's is the perfect place to get close to nature, or to just relax and unwind and leave the stresses of the world behind. Lamington National Park is World Heritage Listed and is the largest sub-tropical rainforest in Australia. Famous for its tree-top walk which offers visitors a close up view of the rainforest canopy and its wildlife, and it is home to over 200 bird varieties, 500 waterfalls and has 160 kilometres of walking tracks. O'Reilly's has been advance accredited as a genuine ecotourism resort.

Today O'Reilly's offers a range of guestrooms to cater to all tastes, from the grandeur of the luxurious Canopy Suites through the tastefully furnished Bithongabel Rooms to the simple yet comfortable Elabana Rooms. Most rooms take advantage of the magnificent views of rolling hills, mountains and valleys. Rooms have no phones, radios or televisions. This allows you to soak up the peaceful sounds of the rainforest. Two Bithongabel Rooms are set aside for disabled access, featuring open showers, lower switches and rails, with staff assisted access to rooms.

Being surrounded by World Heritage listed Lamington National Park and the warm enthusiasm and experience of the O’Reilly’s guides makes it difficult to resist the guided walks, bus trips, evening spotlighting and glow worm walks that are included in each day’s Discovery Program.

While they have all the 'normal' conference facilities at O'Reilly's, they tend not to do 'normal' conferences. More like a retreat, it is an opportunity to remove your team from the constraints and distractions of every day life in the business world and inject some natural inspiration. The breakout rooms offer spectacular views that stretch forever, meeting venues where native bird calls replace mobile phone calls, and dinner destinations where the brightest lights are the moon and stars. Team building activities range from rugged bushwalks and problem solving challenges to the fun of the Tree top walk, 190 metre flying fox and Shanghai firing range. Their Canungra Valley Vineyards property offers an alternative for both business and pleasure activities. The 1868 vintage homestead contains intimate meeting rooms and its very own ballroom. After work you can view the platypus or partake in a range of wine tasting opportunities.

Getting There
Located 105km south of Brisbane Airport, approximately 1˝ hrs by road, and 80km west of Coolangatta Airport, approximately 1 hr by road. The winding road to Lamington Plateau is through scenic rainforests and features spectacular lookouts and is best/safest during daylight hours. Daily coach services provide transfers from Brisbane & the Gold Coast and scenic heli transfers can also be arranged.

Energize yourself at the Spa. Relax in the heated plunge pool, sauna or hot tub after your day’s adventures. To really unwind why not try an aromatherapy massage to sooth those aching muscles. There’s even a children’s wading pool, so the whole family can enjoy the spa area.

The hotel provides baby sitting and child minding services by arrangement prior to arrival. There is no charge for children 17 years and under sharing a room with adults and using existing bedding. A children's activity club 'The Scrub Club' for children aged five to 12 years, operates during Queensland and New South Wales school holidays and every weekend.
