Everyone of course.
But really, this is an all ages tour. Babies through to centurions are welcome.
Low fitness is required and the guided walk is slow so we can see all the sights and very a easy walk. There are some small steps and rocks that may be a little slippery after rain so closed in shoes are recommended.
Lots of families, couples, groups of friends and work colleagues have enjoyed this tour.
Please note this tour can be customised for private tours and large groups.
We are a pretty modest bunch, so we won't tell you how sensational we are, we will just show you what we love!
We are nature lovers, we are protectors and sharers of the rainforest, we are storytellers, sometimes historians and most importantly Gold Coast locals who just want to show off our little piece of the planet.

What our customers are saying
August - 2021
We had a great day with Aza (Aaron) on the Lamington National Park, O'Reilly's and Vineyard Tour. Experienced the winding road up to lookout at the original O'Reilly's guesthouse sight and sampled some fine wines at the Canungra Valley Vineyard, where we said Gidday to some of the Alpacas that are quartered there, before being transported back to our hotel in Surfers.
October - 2021
We had a great day out with Southern Cross Tours on our Lamington National Park Tour. Our guide, Harry was animated, energetic and extremely knowledgeable, throughout the duration of the day. This was good value for money with pick up and drop off, travel, lookout, rainforest skywalk and bird feeding experience included. The winery and alpaca farm were a nice way to end the day. Thank you for a fabulous day out.
