Caves circuit, Lamington National Park

Multiple Locations

Heading off through dense eucalypt forest, keep your eyes aloft as you might just see a koala sitting sleepily in the branches.

Take in the brilliant views into the Coomera Valley, the Darlington Range and rhyolite cliff line. Stop at the seat commemorating the efforts of Robert Collins and quietly thank him for his role in protecting this beautiful landscape.

As you pass through the Kweebani Caves, think back to a time when they sheltered the original inhabitants of this area—the Yugambeh Aboriginal kinship group. From the caves you’ll climb to the summit of Mount Roberts through rainforests of immense red cedars and other trees.

This park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, famed for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity (especially of rare, threatened and endemic species).
