Lost World & Lamington National Park (wilderness section)

“Lost World” – the name says it all – a rare place to savour life away from the crowds.  Only a short drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast, surround yourself with quiet farms, wild mountains, rivers and hidden places.

Lost World’s lush green pastures and tangled forests sit nestled in the foothills of the dramatic rugged mountains of Lamington National Park’s wilderness section. Spend your days walking, birdwatching, horse-riding, fishing or just relaxing. The Albert River and Christmas Creek are perfect for cool dips in summer and secluded picnics along the water’s edge.

With its range of accommodation suited to both romantic getaways close to Brisbane and family holidays, it’s the easily-accessible seclusion which makes this region special. Don’t forget to also explore nearby Kerry Valley with its rambling farmhouses, as well as Lamington, where you’ll find hidden cabins and luxury camping on the banks of the pristine upper reaches of Christmas Creek.
