Sea to the Rainforest

I took some time off to visit one of my favourite rain forests with a friend who was visiting from the US.  Lamington National Park was one of our favourite hiking destinations as we were growing up in this part of the world and it hasn't lost any of its appeal.  If we weren't surfing somewhere along the coast on our weekends we would head to the hinterland to hike through the National Parks that protect some of our local natural wonders.

In addition to some amazing rain forest, waterfalls, pools, glow worms, crayfish, etc, it is home to the rare Albert's Lyrebird which made a fleeting appearance again on this trip.  Well worth a visit if you are in the area - just an hour or so inland from the Gold Coast.
