Welcome to Darlington and Burgess Park
Darlington and Burgess Park camping grounds are council owned properties, privately managed by your friendly hosts Joe and Kate Murray.
The campsites offer visitors an environment to enjoy the outdoors and locality. Just an easy hours drive from both the Gold Coast and Brisbane, this escape is ideal year round.
Darlington and Burgess Park are the perfect locations to unwind, put your feet up and relax.
For the more adventurous, the grounds provide a starting point for exploration of the surrounding areas and all it has to offer.
Both parks offer open space and shade set upon lush kikuyu grass to establish your home for the duration of your stay.
All campers can be accommodated, from 2 man tents to RVs, caravans and big rigs.
When camping overlooking the river or nestled among the trees, the natural surrounds can be appreciated from beside your campfire, drink in hand.
LOST WORLD VALLEY
Lost World is actually a hidden plateau - a green shelf on Razorback Mountain - found long ago by the adventurous O'Reilly's who imagined that anything could have remained hidden on this magical step between mountain and sky.
The valley below is a very beautiful one where today the hustle and stress of the outside world is easily lost.
LAMINGTON NATIONAL PARK
The Lost World is situated at the wilderness end of Lamington National Park.
The magic of World Heritage listed rainforest is close here and is accessible from the Lost World.
A short rock hopping expedition up river will reveal the beautiful bubbles of rock pools and dense green walls of forest vegetation.
Access from Christmas Creek can be obtained with guidance, to the famous wreck of the Stinson plane - crashed in the 1930's and famously found by Bernard O'Reilly with survivors. These were rescued by local men and carried out to safety on makeshift stretchers through the dense jungle.
There is a pleasant half day walk here too to the grave of the young Englishman Jim Westray who survived the crash only to die in a fall down a waterfall while seeking help.
