Stinson Walk

11 – 13 May 2018 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$585 to AU$2400

The Stinson Walk is one of Australia's iconic hikes! Recount Australian history and celebrate the life of Bernard O’Reilly, who heroically saved the lives of two plane crash survivors 80 years ago in World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park.

During a stormy afternoon on 19 February, 1937, the Stinson airliner on route from Brisbane to Sydney crashed into the Lamington Ranges killing four of the seven passengers on board, sparking a search that failed to turn up any wreckage. Ten days later, Bernard O'Reilly set out on foot to find the Stinson wreckage. He managed to find the crash site and to his surprise, two survivors in desperate need of medical attention.

On such a special anniversary year they are offering guests the rare opportunity to walk the Iconic Stinson Walk from two different directions on the date of the crash.

Both walks take you through stunning landscape and you are surrounded by the incredibly diverse and wonderful flora and fauna of Lamington National Park. You can choose the route you would like to take depending on the distance and terrain that suits you best. Visit their website for distances and fitness requirements.
