From O’Reillys Rainforest Retreat, walk 21 kilometres through the Green Mountain section of Lamington following sections of the Queensland/New South Wales border. Based at Binna Burra Lodge, explore the Lower Bellbird Circuit with lookouts over the eastern side of Lamington National Park.

Admire the stands of flooded gums, brushbox and piccabeen groves on the way to lunch at the base of Ballanjui Falls. Leaving Lamington plateau, descend past Egg Rock, a remnant plug from the Tweed shield volcano, Wollumbin (Mt Warning).

The trail continues through the farming valley of Numinbah, then climbs steadily to the mountain plateau of Springbrook. Staying overnight in chalet accommodation, a highlight is a half day hike via Warringah Pools to the cool spray of Purlingbrook Falls in Springbrook National Park.
