We wanted to do a full day tour and the wife suggested the Hummer tour and the local tour at the hotel suggested visiting Lamington National Park and Mt Tambourine, and so was very happy when the Scenic Hinterland Day Tours actually have one that does both. Our guide Barry turned upon a Hummer to pick us up at our hotel, which includes our 2 children (10 and 7), and we headed off for our adventure. Am not going to go through the tour details as it has been well described by some of the reviewers, but what really made the trip enjoyable was Barry's knowledge of the various places we visited, the things we saw, and his kind interactions with the kids (and entertaining their incessant questions). And we even managed to catch a glimpse of a few wild wallabies along the way which Barry kindly pointed out to us and we were able to take a few pictures. We truly had a blast of a day, and this would certainly be one of the highlights of this holiday of ours.

If you want a unique experience without doing the driving and planning, then this is the way to go. This tour was arranged by me for four couples as a birthday treat. Shea and Luke were excellent as the drivers and tour guides for the day. We experienced places and sights that we would never have been to if we hadn't gone four wheel driving. What a great experience and was enjoyed by all.

Booked the Hummer H2 Tour. Barry our Tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was a fantastic Day out. First we drove through the Canungra Valley where the jungle training camp for soldiers of today as well yesteryear is. First stop the Alpaca Farm where we had lamingtons and coffee for morning tea, and took lovely Photos of the scenic Valley and spectacular view of the McPherson Ranges. There were two lots of Alpacas to feed, I chose to feed the mother and two young ones. It was the first contact we had with these animals.

We then went furher up into the World Heritage listed Lamington National Park, on very windy and narrow road to O’Reilly’s mountain guest-house, made nationally famous by the heroic journey of Bernard O’Reilly in finding and rescuing the only 2 survivors of the 1937 Stinston plane crash, almost ten days after the plane went missing. There is a replica of the plane, and a statue of the two survivors and Bernard O'Reilly in parkland on the way to O'Reillys Tree Top Canopy Walk, which starts out as Booyong Board walk, until it reaches the suspended bridge 160m long and 16m high. we had a young man from the UK with us, and he decided to do the ladder Tree Climb that is positioned where the suspended bridge changes direction, being grey nomads we opted out of the ladder climb. This is a very easy walk suitable for all ages. Barry gave descriptions of the different flora within the rainforest and pointed out Strangler Figs, and bush turkey mounds, among many other plants and birds.

We then did some off-road four wheel driving, along Duck Road, which is a deeply rutted and well-used track. We passed more vehicles on this track, than we did while ascending the mountain. This is bush whacking at its best, we came out near the Albert Valley and continued on to Beaudesert, and then up to the Gallery Walk at Mt Tamborine, where we had lunch at a winery there. Not taken in by Gallery Walk, very disappointed of almost total lack of Australian or Mt Tamborine made products.

Then off to Curtis Falls, we did the shorter circuit down to the falls, which actually still had water flowing over the rocks. (May is dry in Qld), the creek was a bit sluggish, the rocks (all volcanic) were huge, and Barry again described some of the vegetation. The steps and track on return where a bit steep in places. I admit I am very unfit.

Stopped at a couple of lookouts on way down the Mountain, Took in the countryside around upper Coomera and Wonga Wallen Creek (yes it was two words originally) and translates as many pigeons. (hubby ancestors were among the first to settle in the area).

we were then dropped back to our accommodation in Surfers.

Hubby really enjoyed his birthday present. Big thank you to Barry who was very informative and good luck to Christos from the UK.who was on the tour, and was the nominated as the official gate-opener. It was a great day out and a great experience.

A tour I highly recommend, don't scrimp. Do the whole day, it is well worth it.
