Very well organized trip and authentic and interrested personnel.
The Park itself is well worth the visit and was good value for Money. The Birds are spectacular.”

The guide, David, really made the tour great. Made sure we would get to see the wildlife and gave interesting facts throughout the day.”

I loved the trip, David our tour guide was excellent. The only thing I would suggest is to possibly bring your own lunch, food is quite expensive, was nice but expensive.”

Our tour guide made this a very memorable excursion. He shared is knowledge of the area, of the animal and of trees. He shared some of his worms to feed the birds. We had some folks on the excursion from Japan and he was fluent in Japanese so he shared the same info with them in Japanese. All-in-all an amazing tour thanks to our guide.”

Great tour and well organized. My one criticism is to Viator who offers no lunch option with this tour. There is clearly a lunch option. the Drive combined guide was very knowledgeable, fluent in multiple languages and a true man of the bush.for instance, he stuck out his hands and birds came to him and knew animal calls, The O' Reilly Cafe is home to a reproduction plane from the 1988 movie Riddle of the Stinson. It is very interesting story about a flight from Brisbane to Syndney that crashed.”

Amazing tour thanks to Super Guide, David! David is fluent in Japanese and he spoke both English and Japanese from the moment we boarded the bus till end of tour. There were some breaks of course, but we learnt so much. Many aspects on flora and fauna were covered in good details with stops to see actual thing.
The one hour at The Gallery was pleasant for a bathroom break : coffee, wine tasting, local fare or early lunch etc. We had samples at the macadamia fudge shop.
David ensured O'Reilly staff facilitate the prepaid lunch smoothly burgers, fish and chips : The queues are very long, so pack your own sandwich or prepay. After the 30 minute lunch, have your breath taken away as David takes you into the Park. He whistles and robins come feeding off our hands!!! Very informational, we went inside a hollow tree too. David showed us a real elaborate nest that the male Bower bird built to entice females. The male bird collects all blue items and place it around the nest!
If we went on our own, we would have minimum experience. So Thankful to have a learned Guide like David!
The walk is very eye-opening. There's free time to absorb all the natural settings.
On the way back, David would stop for us as soon as he spotted wallabies or interesting Flora. We saw macadamia trees too. We saw a total of 11 wallabies in a few stops. THANK YOU DAVID, you made the trip so worthwhile!”

Wonderful and very informative day trip! The views on Tamborine and Lamington lookouts are spectacular our guide is very kind and knowledgeable and showed us wallabies and local birdlife as we saw them. I have several great photos of the lovely robin.
Recommend to nature lovers and photographers, or any other who want to enjoy a relaxing day in the mountains.”

The meeting place was very easy to find. The group was mixed, with some people staying at O'Reilly's overnight and some of us as daytrippers. The tour guide provided a lot of information about the flora and fauna, and we saw lots of birds. There is some independent time for lunch and additional hiking/bird feeding at O'Reilley's, before gathering at the bus and heading back to the city.”

This is a long trip out of Brisbane. Once you get off the shuttle bus and away from the highway the day improves. Our guide/driver was excellent and very knowledgeable. I am just sorry I cannot recall his name. Chris, I think. I was glad of the stop at Gallery Walk to get a decent coffee and a cake - I would advise you get food here as the food at the park is not brilliant. We pre booked the optional lunch, which was off a poor standard. Take your own food. I am not a shopper so the short stop was adequate and there is a long drive ahead. The landscape you drive through is stunning, very windy roads and so glad I was not driving. The tree top canopy walk is not to be missed. I learned so much about the history of this country and about the wildlife on this trip. Seeing the bird that collect blue things in its bower was a bonus. On the drive down we saw pretty faced wallabies. All in all an excellent day out.”
