A wonderful weekend away from the kids at O'Reilly's. The setting for O'Reilly's is simply stunning and I think any room you booked would be great. As this was our only holiday without kids in 3 years (and possibly the last for a lot longer)...More

There are many fantastic walks of various lengths in this glorious N.P. The wonderful trees that have been spared the woodcutters axe have been growing for hundreds of years. Beautiful lorikeets, king parrots, lyre-birds and the magnificent Regent Bower birds, as well as the less...More

We'd been 20 years ago, and had fond memories, but we were terribly disappointed. Fortunately, we had bought a package at a discounted rate ( supposably 50% off ) we ABSOLUTELY froze to death in our room, even after 2 days and nights with the...More

Hello O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat team, My best friend is getting married mid May 2017 and I was hoping to plan her girls getaway the week before her and her partner tie the knot. We were hoping to enjoy a relaxing weekend of day trekking, nature watching and catching up over wine before the big day. I was looking into accomodation around the Lamington National Park region and your retreat looks very elegant with views that are simply breathtaking! I would love to find out more about the requirements and limitations of a weekend stay, and also ask more about the local activities you would recommend nearby. Firstly, we would have around 15 people interested in coming. What accomodation could you recommend for us so we stay together as much as possible (self-catered villas perhaps). As we are quite an outdoorsy bunch, we would each have the capacity to roll out our own personal swags to cater for those not utilising the bedrooms. So my first question would be what would be your limitations for maximum number of guests. The length of stay we would like to be there for is 3 nights, potentially around Saturday 6th, Sunday 7th and Monday 8th of May, however we would be flexible for two days before or after if those dates are unavailable. Secondly, we would love to do as many outdoor activities as possible, so I was hoping to get an idea of local guides/companies you could recommend for trekking and nature watching that is in close proximity to the house, and any other interesting things you think would be good for our group size. Thank you so very much for your time and consideration, I would welcome a personal message with a reply sent here or via email if possible. I look forward to hearing back from you. Kind regards, Samantha Barnett

Fabulous location for your getaway and the Management at O'Reillys would be best to assist you - I found the staff and Management there excellent. I am sure you will have a great time! :)

I don't think so. The resort is a long way from anywhere and it is not the sort of place where fashionable dress or hairdos are necessary.
