Binna Burra Lodge and O'Reilly's Guided Walks/Activities

On this trip we won't be staying at either of these places. To be honest, they have pretty much priced themselves out of our range. But it also has to do with wanting to visit both areas and staying at one makes it a bit more difficult to get to the other.

But, I always enjoyed the guided walks and activities at O'Reilly's so I sent emails to both places and asked if these were open to individuals who were not staying in their accommodations.

I got emails back right away, and they do! As long as they are not full of paying guests I can pay 15 or 20 or whatever and join in. I'm so happy to hear this. I'm perfectly happy walking about on my own, but with DH birdwatching there may be times I want to go further afield and I don't really like doing that by myself in the rainforst.

So, in case any other visitors are daytripping to those sections of Lamington National Park, it's something to keep in mind.
