The Great Walk – a Queensland long-distance walking trail – is  a five-day guided experience, exploring the mountains, waterfalls and forests of Australia’s ‘Green Cauldron’, including Lamington and Springbrook national parks.


Points of interest

  • Secrets of the Scenic Rim showcases all of our region's World Heritage national parks and incorporates opportunities to meet local olive growers, farmers, artists, as well as wine and cheese makers.
  • The Great Walk is an opportunity to immerse in two distinct types of Australian forest - the lush verdant growth of our iconic Gondwana rainforest and the beauty of the stereo-typical Australian bush, dominated by eucalypt forest. Your guide will also help identify bird and Australian wildlife in its native habitat.
  • Relax each night in comfortable family-owned eco-lodge, chalet and motel accommodation, enjoying local food and flavours of the Scenic Rim and Gold coast hinterland.
