Green Mountains section of Lamington National Park, in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, features lush rainforests, ancient trees and spectacular views.

Camp at the park's Green Mountain camping area. Choose from the many half-day or full-day walks that explore the park. On the Python Rock track, listen for the masked mountain frog's popping call. Enjoy views of Morans Falls and Morans Creek gorge on the Morans falls track. Spot leaf-tailed geckos on the West Canungra Creek track. Set out on a full day walk along the Border track or Mount Merino track for outstanding views.

A privately-operated mountain retreat, Segway tours and zipline are also offered here.
