Business Events and Conferences

Ensure your team or delegates Green-Up, Get Active and Get Connected in the Ancient Rainforests of Gondwana and World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park.

Day 1 – Green Up

Your event doesn’t have to be four walls and a projector screen! You can use your conference meal times and breaks to experience the wildlife, waterfalls and wonder of O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat. An ideal location for conference delegates seeking to embrace nature – with 250 local species of sub-tropical birdlife, reptiles, frogs, mammals and invertebrates at your doorstep.

Early morning – Bird Walk

Rise and shine for the early morning bird walk – join an expert guide as we he whistles and weaves his way through the rainforest introducing you to some of the rare and exotic sub-tropical birds and native wildlife that make their home in the rainforest.

Morning Tea – Wildlife Encounter

Introduce your delegates to some of our most charming and intriguing Australian wildlife. Get up close and personal as an O’Reilly’s guide shares intel on our feathered, furry and scaly friends.

Lunch and Learn – Birds of Prey

After lunch let your delegates stretch out in the sun in front of panoramic views across the Western McPherson Ranges and enjoy these majestic feathered kings of the sky. Just be sure to hide any lunch leftovers or you may find yourself a little too close for comfort!

Afternoon Tea – Bush Tucker Walk

Stretch your delegates legs and switch gears on this Bush Walk with a local Indigenous Leader and learn about our native flora and fauna from Gondwana’s traditional caretakers.

After dinner – Glow Worm Tour

All aboard the four-wheel-drive bus for a guided rainforest tour to the mystical Glow Worm Grotto. Perch yourself beside the secluded gully, home to millions of ancient Glow Worms, illuminating the cliff face in a blanket of twinkling stars. A truly spectacular and unique way to conclude your daily itinerary!
