O'Reilly's, Lamington National Park

We've just spent a couple of days at O'Reilly's with a few friends from the Birthday Bear Group. O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat is in the Lamington National Park on the Gold Coast Hinterland. It has a lot of interesting birdlife and I was able to see (for the first time) a couple of Whip Birds and a Rufus Wagtail, on a walk early one morning.

Here is the (re-edited) version of a short movie I made.


  1. Very impressed with this video. Do you use a tripod? My miserable efforts are always so shaky. Anyhow, enjoyed it from beginning to end.

    1. Hi Denise. No, I sometimes use a monopod. I did in the rainforest scenes. I know I should use a tripod and I have 3 of them, it's just a lot of bother when you're travelling in a group. Say hello to Greg.

  2. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this video and sharing it with readers! I LOVED the scenery, the birds, the dear people and the harmonicas!!!!! What a delightful trip you shared together - making memories. I love you all!


  3. It was fun. Lets do it again but go for a bush walk next time.
