O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat Villas & Lost World Spa


The Lost World Spa… I can think of no better name for this peaceful place after spending two blissful hours there on a rain-misted Saturday morning. A vino-therapy body treatment followed by a luxurious couple’s relaxation massage dissolved all traces of tension from our stressed bodies. Bliss! The spa menu is extensive and for those serious about getting the most out of their relaxation time at O’Reilly’s, at least one visit is a must. At least one.


If there’s only one wildlife adventure that you undertake during your time here, there are just two words: glow worms. At O’Reilly’s this magical experience involves a short stroll through the bush at night with your guide, to the banks of a creek. Here, you’ll witness a display of living lights that simply has to be seen to be believed. Totally and utterly amazing.


From the Gold Coast or Brisbane you’ll travel through the quaint town of Canungra Valley and soon start your ascent to O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat 1.000 metres above. The views are utterly picturesque,  but the road is winding, with many single lanes, so do take care. On your way up. spare a thought for travellers who once had to travel for two days by horse and cart to get here.
