Bushwalking and Hiking

This is an obvious option, but it’s incredibly popular. Situated 800 meters above sea level the scenery is characterised by rugged mountainous forest, dive deeper into the forest and you will be rewarded with caves and fern gullies, crystal clear waterfalls, pristine swimming holes, breathtaking look outs and plenty of wildlife spotting!

There are over 160 kilometres of walking tracks to chose from, so you can select your own difficulty, distance, and even scenery.

Massage and Spa

Whether you are recovering from a particularly long hike or zip lining adventure or just want to ease into your holiday, a treatment at Bliss Massage is the perfect way to soak up the rainforest atmosphere and unwind.


Start your day with a 1 hour Hatha Yoga session every Saturday and Sunday morning. No previous experience necessary and beginners are encouraged to give it a go! When in Rome. Or when in the rainforest.


Being nestled in a rainforest means everything you’d normally do on a holiday is made 10 times better as it’s comes with a beautiful view. That includes dining. Clifftop Dining Room at the lodge is open for breakfast and dinner daily with a dinner bell to inform guests that dining has commenced! The Lamington Teahouse is a quaint little café offering casual dining throughout the day along with the standard incredible views. This is also where you’ll find a small variety of groceries. Finally there are plenty of BBQ facilities with BBQ packs available at reception!

Adventure Activities


Try your hand at the adrenalin pumping action of abseiling at Binna Burra. Rappel down 10 metres of volcanic escarpment before moving onto the 40 meter or 90 meter cliff faces! The 10 and 40 meter challenges include morning tea, while you are rewarded with a full lunch for daring to try the 90 meter abseil!

Flying Fox

At Bellbird clearing you will find the resort’s very own flying fox! Once you strap yourself into the safety harness you can set sail across the rainforest treetops for 165 meters of  flying fox!


Why not give one of the oldest sports in the world a try? This medieval activity is great for all ages and takes place rain, hail or shine! (Reads: the targets can be moved indoors where necessary so it’s great all weather activity).

Wild Walks

If you are looking for a unique and challenging activity in the rainforest, a guided tour off the beaten path is for you! 1 or 2 day hikes are taken by the eco experts who guide a maximum group of 10 people through the much less travelled parts of Lamington!
