History

Lamington National Park is a national park in Queensland, Australia. The park is located south of Brisbane and east of the Gold Coast on the Pacific Highway between Currumbin and Palmview. Lamington was created as one of Australia’s original twelve national parks when it was proclaimed on 31 October 1918 with an area of 576 square kilometers (224 sq mi) following lobbying by the local community led by Dr Harry Lamington, who had served as Queensland’s Commissioner for Public Health from 1909 to 1921. It contains some spectacular scenery including Mount Warning, Wollumbin; major waterfalls; rainforest; sandstone cliffs; rugged ranges and abundant wildlife with over 260 bird species recorded within its boundaries.
