Tucked away in the foothills of World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park, is a spot straight from a picture-book, Darlington Park. The area is part of South East Queensland's beautiful Scenic Rim and is a great base from which to explore this unique and spectacular part of the world.
Caravan, motorhome and camping enthusiasts regularly flock to the excellent camp grounds situated on banks of the picturesque Albert River. Toilets and free gas barbecues are provided, however there are no showers or electricity and visitors must bring their own water and firewood.... more
The area also has several quaint bed-and-breakfasts, farm-stays and romantic cottage-style accommodations set against the spectacular scenery of the surrounding mountains and rainforest.
A walk to the headwaters of Albert River rewards with beautiful scenery. The river is stocked with bass and cod and a catch release system maintains good numbers. Other activities available in the area include horse riding and four wheel drive tours of the least inaccessible but most beautiful parts of the dramatic landscape.
From Darlington Park you can explore the ancient world of Lamington National Park, O Reilly's and neighbouring Lost World Valley. Walking tracks will take you through thick lush rainforest to spectacular gorges, thundering waters and breath-taking scenery.
Darlington Park is just 90 minutes' drive south of Brisbane via Beaudesert.... less
