O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat Canungra Reviews
O'Reilly's in the heart of Lamington National Park Aug 12, 2008
O'Reilly's rainforest guest lodge is located in the heart of the Lammington National Park around 1hour from the gold Coast. O'reilly's has been in their own family for around 100 years
The lodging is comfortable but quite simple for the price of the room as it's very expensive. I think my wife got the room for around $230 a night but you are not paying for the room but for the location as I think it's the only accomodation in the park other than the camping grounds.The room did have a lovely view though
O'Reilly's also has a daily activity plan as you can do as much as you want with them or you can do your own things.O'reilly'S have one main restraunt which is very expensive or you can eat at their bar or at the cafe but it did close around 5pm in the Winter You can also buy their meal plan which includes breakfast, morning tea, lunch afternoon tea and dinner for $99 a person.
other facilities include, a library in the lodge, a games room with a billiard table and a pool, not heated and a jacauzzi which is needed after the hiking that you would do.
Overall a nice place if you want to get away from it all and escape your city life, however beaware of all the daytrippers that come up to the national park especially on the weekends.
Just remembered there are no TV's in the rooms, so if you can't live without TV, then this is not the place for you.
