Lovely walking tracks
Dec 2020
I have visited Binna Burra many times and there are several lovely walking tracks. One of them, the Caves Circuit, I have only done once before, getting on for 40 years ago.

It is only 5 km long but quite up and down so the suggested 1.5 hours is a bit ambitious. We are not very fit and it was blisteringly hot so we took our time and did it in 2.5 hours. It is a nice walk with good views.

It is recommended to do it anticlockwise and this is good advice. Park at the main picnic area and walk 1.5 km down the road to Saddle Trailhead and start the remaining 3.5 km walk from there.

The second walk we did was Daves Creek Circuit. It is 10 km with mostly gentle slopes. The outstanding feature of this walk is the varying vegetation: rain forest, open eucalypt forest, and heath.

I have one criticism of the signage. It is recommended that you do the circuit clockwise. However, unless you know exactly where the circuit section starts and ends, you are forced to do it anticlockwise. If you really want to do it clockwise, after 3 km you will come to an intersection with a large brown tree on your left with a seat nearby. Follow the left branch past the tree rather than going straight ahead as the signage tells you. You won't get lost (I hope!).

Binna Burra is back!
Sep 2020
A pure thrill accompanied our walking group of 10, all fifties plus, as we returned to our beloved Binna Burra in the Lamington National Park. It has taken 12 months of brutal heavy work achieved by 50 plus forestry workers. The repair continues on an astonishing scale after the searing fires of Sept 2019 left chaos in their swathe, but Nature is a miracle girl and look what survived and thrived... It was a privilege to walk 20 kms of Coomera Circuit track where almost no feet had trod for so long.. soft leafy fall and tiny miracles of new growth welcomed us and await you who will follow us, if you're very lucky. Be careful where you step....
The track veers off the Border track between Binna Burra and O'Reillys in the Lamington National Park 1.9 from the car park.
Giant trees may have burnt, but so many have thrived. Precious giants have crashed and carved their way to the ground to rest in peace... Coachwood, Blackbutt, Blue Mountain Ash as well as She Oaks, Nightcap Wattle and a prolific abundance of ferns, heaths, mint bushes remain to thrive. 8 creek crossings of precarious and slippery slide challenged us all, but we kept looking up as well as down and listening because the birds were all equally thrilled to have us back. The cliffs and valleys fell and soared around us. It's a long walks with ups and downs but we all felt exhilarated to do it despite groaning knees and thigh muscles.
Nature is indeed a wonder. Thanks to our special walking friends......and huge gratitude and thanks to all the workers who have rebuilt and repaired the road access via Binna Burra to so many stunning walking experiences. A cafe is open for tea and coffee on a modest improviser scale. It is worth supporting and the view is superb. Be prepared for road delays of up to 20 minutes on two occasions....

Coomera Circuit - pleasant day walk
Jul 2019
Circuit walk (18km), takes you along a valley tracking up past a few waterfalls, and then back along the ridge line. Easy enough walk, albeit reasonably long. We completed it in about 4.5 hours, with a few stops, at a steady pace. There are a few side trails if you have time.

Fabulous park area teeming with wildlife and beautiful birds.
Feb 2020
In spite of recent bushfire threats and devastation nearby, this beautiful park remains pristine, beautiful, delightful to visit and awesome to breathe in its beauty. Parks like this make it clear why this area is part of the "green behind the gold" - a green background just inland of the beautiful Gold Coast.

Lamington National Park trails are great!
Aug 2019 • Friends
There are many trails to choose from. Most are long and strenuous but a few aren't. We camped at the campground and it can be full of Aussies partying for the weekend. Not sure what's it's like on a weeknight though. Facilities (before the fire) we're basic and adequate.

Beautiful rainforest walk
Aug 2019 • Friends
This is a beautiful Park with an amazing rainforest walk away from the main road and quite close to the Gold Coast. You can take the Morans Falls walk which will make you feel in a magic world. You will reach a lookout from where you will see a nice view of the scenery and the Fall.

A lovely day trip enjoying nature and birds
Aug 2019 • Family
Drive safely and follow the road signs up the windy mountain roads. It’s a 2 hour drive from Brisbane. In winter it can be cool so dress warm. There’s toilets, cafe and shop there with picnic tables. Also an accommodation place there to stay. There’s wooden foot path walks, a suspension bridge and longer dirt tracks to follow. You can buy bird seed to feed the green parrots and crimson rosellas. You can spend half a day there or a full day of adventure. Beautiful views. Bring yourself a picnic to enjoy the outdoors.

Not as good as we expected
Apr 2019 • Couples
We decided on a day out to the National Park to walk the treetops & surrounding area as it is advertised to see wildlife & birds. Well unless you don’t mind the suspension bridges moving it is ok but you really can’t much except trees - no wildlife or birds. We did however see birds near the cafe that was obviously planned. The cafe was awful - smelt of stale frying & only had ice creams & pies. It was lovely to be in the fresh air but not sure the long hairy winding road is worth it.

Beautiful NP
Jul 2018 • Friends
I’ve had many adventures at this national park. The walks are amazing - some with views, some with waterfalls, and all gorgeous. So much wildlife too - if you’re a bird nerd you’ll love the bird life (bowerbirds, rosellas, lorikeets, king parrots!) but there’s also lots of pademelons, small wallabies and even tiny antechinuses if you look at the forest floor enough.

One of my best friends loved this place so much, she had a small wedding ceremony at one of the waterfalls - absolutely magic.
