Binna Burra Lodge is under one hour’s drive from the Gold Coast and just 90 minutes from Brisbane. The rainforest of Lamington National Park sprawls like a rich emerald carpet across the spurs and valleys of the McPherson Ranges.
The name; Binna Burra, is an Aboriginal word meaning “where the beech tree grows,” referring to a stand of ancient Antarctic Beech in the nearby rainforest. Founded in 1933, Binna Burra’s Mountain Lodge is one of Australia’s longest established nature-based resorts, named one of the world’s top 10 eco-lodges and green hotels.
Binna Burra is a great starting point for numerous nature walks through the pristine Lamington National Park.
You can explore caves once used by the local indigenous people for shelter and cooking. Marvel at thundering waterfalls shrouded in mist and feel the temperature drop when the sun disappears and as you descend into the rainforest canopy.
The blue and white spiny Lamington Crayfish can sometimes be seen in rock pools, but more often met casually strolling down the walking tracks during wet weather. Keep a look-out for native koalas high in the trees as well as small pademelon kangaroos, goannas and more than 600 bird species.
Locals say that there is a spirit which dwells in these mountains and forests, a spirit which has captivated thousands of people from all over the world since the area was first opened up in the early part of this century and has been welcoming guests since the early 1930s.
