The first Binna Burra camp was held over the 1933 Christmas holidays when Romeo Lahey, Arthur Groom and 70 hardy adventurers set up a collection of tents on the ‘saddle’, the grassy area on the lead-up to the Lodge.
For five shillings a day, guests were provided with accommodation, meals and guided walks through the rainforest.
Members of the Groom and Lahey families will attend Saturday’s celebrations, along with members of the Beechmont community, tourism partners, shareholders and nature lovers.
In 1933 a hoop pine was planted to mark the founding of Binna Burra. On Saturday another hoop pine will be planted to mark the 80-year milestone.
