Take a short break in south east Queensland at one of our favourite times of the year. Early Autumn in the mountains heralds dramatic skies, abundant wildlife and cool nights radiant with stars. Walks include creek explorations, exhilarating ascents of the local peaks and shorter strolls through sub-tropical rainforest in World Heritage listed areas. From Brisbane we travel south west to Main Range National Park for rainforest and lookout walks with the option to climb Mt Mitchell. This park straddles the Great Dividing Range and is part of the Scenic Rim arc of mountains. Turning south east, we spend three nights at Lamington National Park. We follow walks along the northern ridges of an ancient shield volcano, admiring the Gondwana rainforest and the creeks and waterfalls of two major rivers. Over two days, we will offer a selection of popular and lesser known walks with options to hike as much or as little as you prefer. Our final walk is a section of the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk in Springbrook National Park before returning to Brisbane in the late afternoon.
- Explore the escarpment of Main Range National Park, following rainforest tracks to lookout points
