Binna Burra has been offering a genuine Australian experience in nature. since the early 1930s. Sadly, on 8 September 2019, a major bushfires destroyed many of the core heritage listed buildings. However, not all was lost, the Rainforest Campsite, Lamington Teahouse Cafe, Groom’s Cottage (Group Accommodation), function rooms, one cabin and most of our luxury Skylodges still remain and will be open to the public as soon as the road is secured.
Our biggest challenge that remains is safe and secure road access. The Queensland Department of Main Roads and Transport have been doing a wonderful job to repair our access road, the latest reports are that it will not be ready for public use until early January.
Make a plan in 2020 to come and visit Binna Burra. It’s still going to be a wonderful World Heritage Listed natural experience! Positioned 800 meters above sea level amidst the sub-tropical rainforest of Lamington National Park in the Gold Coast Hinterland, Binna Burra is centre stage to some of Australia’s most spectacular natural features. Winding through ancient Antarctic Beech forests, along exposed escarpments and into heath-land, be amazed by the rich abundance of birds and unique wildlife that inhabit this complex and diverse ecosystem.
Our unique isolation provides the perfect escape from the stresses of everyday life and a chance to get back to basics, interact with nature and experience a freedom & sense of peace that few places can offer.
