Another option is to stay at Binna Burra which is also located adjacent to 
Lamington NP.  They have different levels of accomodation from high level motel 
rooms to tent sites.  One option that may interest you is the tent huts that 
they have - all set up with beds etc.  It makes for a nice compromise, 
especially if you don't have all the camping equipment with you.

Access to Lamington NP is just as good and O'Reilly's can be reached via the 
Border Trail, which is a long but enjoyable track.  The Rufous Scrub-birds 
along the trail are probably pretty quiet at this time of the year but can be 
found in the Antarctic Beech Tree areas.  The Antarctic Beeches are worth the 
walk in their own right.

If it is raining check yourself regularly for leeches - there are lots of them 
about in Lamington!

If you stay at O'Reilly's go for a walk down the Duck Creek Rd - I have seen 
Albert's Lyrebird crossing the road here.  I believe Marbled Frogmouth are 
often seen at the start of the road in the rainforest in the evenings.  Further 
down at the Kurrajong Lookout is a good spot for Spotted Quail-thrush and 

For other good birding spots check out and have 
a great time!
