Wongari Eco Retreat, Lamington

Seclusion and privacy, beside the pristine rapid-filled headwaters of Christmas Creek. Wongari is Lamington National Park accommodation where you can  laze in a hammock under the rainforest canopy, read a book, watch the birds or  swim in the private rock pools of our creek. For the more adventurous, there’s plenty of opportunity to explore. Wongari sits nestled in a spectacular gorge setting, with gentle walks on our property along both our creeks.

The renowned Stinson Grave and Wreck walks are easily accessed, although a guide is recommended if you’re not an experienced walker. Serenity Cabin sits in its own private 10 acre section of our property, with 200m of private frontage to Christmas Creek, so you’re guaranteed not to be disturbed.  The holiday cottage is fully self-contained with a wood oven, rainforest deck, king-sized bed and a glass-enclosed shower overlooking  rainforest garden.
