Lamington National Park,QLD, Australia.
Walks: There are plenty of walks….long or short. This is one example.
Wishing Tree and Mick’s Tower
Mick’s Tower Return Distance 1 km
Wishing Tree Return Distance 2.4 km
*The Wishing Tree Track entrance is located below the main guesthouse accommodation of O’Reilly’s Resort. The track continues past some large Brush Box and over a tree fern gully spanned by a suspension bridge. At the Wishing Tree you can turn left into Glow Worm Gully or ahead under the Wishing Tree to Morans Creek.
Retrace your steps for the easiest way home or you can extend your walk by following the track downstream to return by the Red Road (2.5 km) or Moran’s Falls (5km).
For Mick’s Tower follow the track for 330 metres. Turn sharp right at the track junction for 120 metres. This rainforest observation tower is 18 metres high. Information signs on the various decks refer to the surrounding rainforest and in particular to a large Red Carabeen growing close by.
This is an ideal spot to enjoy the tranquility of a rainforest canopy with the birds for company.
