Locating Lamington National Park

Lamington National Park, being one of the most resource-rich parks in the whole of Australia, expectedly receives visitors from outside Queensland and even Australia. It is therefore not surprising that many visitors might face challenges when trying to locate Lamington National Park. In cognisance of this, we have provided robust guiding resources to make locating the park much easier. 

Using Google map might be the most convenient option for most people as it is pretty accurate and easy to use. However, if you need alternatives to getting around, you can get the various maps we have. There is a Green Mountains section map, Binna Burra section map, and the Gold Coast and hinterland parks locality map. All of these maps could prove very useful when trying to get to the park and even for getting around.

Lamington National Park is made of two parts. On the western side of the Lamington Plateau, you will find the Green Mountains section. On the other hand, the Binna Burra section is located on the eastern side. You can access the park through either of these sections. 

It should be noted, however, that there is no public transport to the Lamington National Park. Thus, you should expect it to be difficult to get taxis or ride-share operators to pick up from the park.

Accessibility is taken seriously in Lamington National Park. We try to provide a wonderful experience to a wide range of people that might not have the same abilities. In light of this, there are wheelchair-accessible facilities like toilets provided at the day-use area of both the Green Mountains section and the Binna Burra section of the park. In addition, there are wheelchair-accessible picnic tables available in the Binna Burra section.

The Green Mountains section has two wheelchair-accessible walking tracks. The first is the 900m Centenary track and the other one is the first 700m of the Border track. 

Ensuring Your Safety

Being a wild place, the Lamington National Park has hidden dangers that make every visitor cautious. In addition to paying attention to various danger signs, there are other steps you can take to keep yourself safe while visiting Lamington National Park.

First, be very careful around water bodies. Do not dive into the water as this can lead to spinal cord injuries like paraplegia. In addition to that, there is also the risk of drowning. 

Furthermore, it is advisable not to walk at night for whatever reason. However, if it becomes absolutely unavoidable, ensure that you have sufficient lighting and exercise caution. Also, do not take long walks without telling anyone and be cautious of the wildlife while taking you walks. It is recommended that you take adequate food and water as well as a first-aid kit on your walks.
