Darlington

The Albert River is the main character in the story-book setting which is Darlington Park, perched among the foothills of the World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park. Let your travel tale unfold as you camp along the banks of this lovely river, stocked with bass and cod on a catch and release system.

While toilets and free gas barbecues are provided, there is no shower or electricity and visitors must bring their own water and firewood for this rustic river escape in the Kerry Valley. If your story is slightly more upmarket, select from several bed and breakfasts, farm stays and romantic cottages in the nearby area where you can enjoy the best of both worlds among the mountain and rainforest setting. Write your own script.

Simply relax or go horseriding or four wheel driving around these picturesque parts from which you can explore Lamington National Park. Or take the trek up the delightfully-named Duck Creek Road to the world-class O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat and the Lost World Valley. The Lost World? The plot just thickened.

Darlington: Where To Go / Sightseeing

A walk to the headwaters of Albert River rewards with beautiful scenery. The river is stocked with bass and cod and a catch release system maintains good numbers. Other activities available in the area include horse riding and four wheel drive tours of the least inaccessible but most beautiful parts of the dramatic landscape.

From Darlington Park you can explore the ancient world of Lamington National Park, O Reilly’s and neighbouring Lost World Valley. Walking tracks will take you through thick lush rainforest to spectacular gorges, thundering waters and breath-taking scenery.
