With no televisions or phones in the rooms, O'Reilly's allows you to completely get away from all the hustle and bustle of your everyday life, where melodious bird calls replace phone calls and stunning rainforest views replace television screens. There are many activities to partake in and meal options to enjoy while staying at O'Reilly's.
For over 100 years, the O’Reilly family has been welcoming visitors to their mountain home in World Heritage listed Lamington National Park, in Australia’s Gold Coast Hinterland. Escape to a world of ancient forest, fresh mountain air, crystal clear creeks and breathtaking sunsets only a short drive from the City of Gold Coast. Experience the magic of the subtropical rainforest with 160 kilometers of walking trails, over 500 waterfalls and 250 species of unique Australian wildlife right outside your door. Connect with nature at its best and each other. Admire the magnificent surrounds and breathtaking views while enjoying traditional Australian service, great food and wine, all with a smile. The spacious location comprises 66 rainforest retreat accommodation rooms, free from distractions of televisions and telephones and 48 self-contained luxurious eco villas set within 20,000 hectare of rainforest.
Three suites adjoin the luxuriant rainforest canopy and offer twice the space of the standard Mountain View rooms. A comfortable living area features recycled timber flooring, lounge chairs and audio system. The suites have four large balconies with spectacular views of the rainforest foliage and western mountain ranges. A spacious bedroom features a king-size four-poster bed, sofa and a warming fireplace. To top it all off, the bathroom has a spa bath with views through a full-length picture window of the breathtaking mountain scenery.
All Mountain View Rooms boast a private balcony where you can relax and soak up the magnificent views to the McPherson ranges. The most popular style of room is the spacious high-set rooms that feature exposed beams, natural timbers, raked ceilings, heaters and a private bathroom. Most rooms contain a queen and single bed, whilst six family rooms also contain additional bedding for two extra guests, and two are wheelchair accessible.
These motel style rooms feature red cedar shutters, hand crafted Queensland Maple furniture and timber queen-sized beds. All six rooms have heaters, private ensuites and views of the gardens around the guesthouse.
The Dining Room is the heart and soul of O'Reilly's, offering delicious food and a good selection of wines, including some in-house O'Reilly's wines, all wrapped up in a cheerful and friendly atmosphere. Recount your day's adventures with fellow guests and plan the days ahead over a hearty meal. Share your dining experience with the nature of Lamington National Park, where at breakfast you will find masses of color in the bay windows as the Regent and Satin Bowerbirds come in for a meal. At night you'll be able to spot the mountain Brushtail Possums and sometimes even a Sugar Glider or two. The Dining Room is open for breakfast and dinner daily.
O’Reilly’s new Lost World Spa is a haven for rejuvenation and relaxation. Featuring seven treatment rooms including two couples suites, the Lost World Spa uses all natural Australian Sodashi products, offering therapeutic treatments and the unique vino therapy using grapes from the on-site vineyard.
Energize, enjoy and immerse your body in the stunning infinity edge lap pool that boasts endless views to the mountain ranges. With a children’s wading pool, let the whole family take pleasure in this luxurious pool area.
