We have just returned from 3 nights at O'Reilly's with 2 children aged 2 and 5. We had an inclusive package staying in a largish motel size room. The booking cost was $1000 for the room, dinners and breakfast and some activities. We spent around $1300 all up - extra tours, drinks and activities. The accommodation is comfortable and offers...

I had not been here since I was a child in the late 1970s. I took my own family (my wife and I and three kids, 11, 10 and 9) and they had a great time. We had a package that included breakfast and dinner. The meals were good, although changing the dinner menu would have provided some more choice... More

Back home after spending a fabulous four days at O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat. Although I missed out on a rainforest downpour (it was bright and sunny), the hospitality of the O'Reilly's management and staff, and the bonhomie of fellow sojourners made for an exceptional time. If you love Australian animals (especially the native birds), the O'Reilly's Birds of Prey Show, or... More

Just had two nights at O'Reillys with my family - 3 adults and an older teen. We took advantage of a special they had available for $158 per room for 2 including breakfasts. After the long and windy drive up the mountain it was like arriving in heaven. The lovely old building, which houses reception, the dining-room, library and (our... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights at O'Reilly's recently, having last visited 10 or so years ago. In the main the experience was disappointing. Firstly the good bit. You just have to start with the forest. It is majestic, serene and quite wonderful. But of the four major hikes here, one is closed and another, the Albert River circuit... More

A weekend away starting Friday afternoon. The reception staff very helpful, friendly & accommodating after the windy road trip up. The room was spot on for the two of us, a bit Gilligan's Island really, no TV , no radio. It was perfect, allowed us to talk, read & most importantly relax. The views from the balcony was breathtaking, setting... More

Since childhood I had always enjoyed the magic of O'Reilly's - the sounds, smells, and sights of nature. As an adult, I would return - not infrequently - to experience the serenity. There was one other feature that drew me back - the restaurant food! It was always of a high quality and at an affordable price. How times have... More
