Bushwacker Ecotours

Bushwacker Ecotours operate tours to Southern Queensland’s World Heritage Rainforests. They offer both day and overnight packages to Springbrook and Lamington National Parks. If you’re an outdoors person you will like their “more time in the bush, less time in the bus” attitude.

Walks are guided with knowledgeable guides. Activities include walking, wildlife viewing, glow worm tour and a 165 metre flying fox. Sights include 100 metre waterfalls, stunning views, caves, sub tropical rainforest, 1000 year old trees and native flora and fauna.

Touring Options

After a hearty picnic lunch, the last walk takes you to Bellbird lookout. Fantastic views back to the coast and all the way to Moreton Bay. You will also be given the opportunity to take a ride through the rainforest canopy on a 165 metre flying fox.
