Lamington National Park boasts extensive walking tracks along the McPherson Range, which allow visitors to explore the area's forests, creeks and waterfalls. Dramatic lookouts afford views over the Gold Coast, south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales.
Lamington is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, which includes the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world. The West Canungra Creek Circuit track descends to "Yerralahla" (blue pool), passing by some large rainforest trees including red cedar, (Toona ciliata), and then follows the creek for most of its length, crossing it several times.
The track exits via the Box Forest circuit. Fossilised ancestors of this species from over 20 million years ago have been found in the World Heritage listed Australian Fossil Mammal Sites in Riversleigh.Visit Website
