National Parks and Reserves, Natural Attractions
Binna Burra, Lamington National Park has recently been affected by fire. Check Park alerts (https://parks.des.qld.gov.au/park-alerts/) for information on access, closures and conditions.
Visit for a day or trek to a bush camp. Take short walks from the day use area or long hikes deep into the park’s forest, exploring boulder-strewn mountain streams, dramatic lookouts, rugged cliffs and plunging gorges.
As you explore the park, pay homage to the earliest inhabitantsthe Yugambeh kinship group. They know this area as Woonoongoora and the mountains are sacred and spiritualplaces to be nurtured and respected.
There is a rich volcanic history under the spreading greenery of the park. Tamborine, Springbrook, Beechmont and Lamington are remnants of the Tweed shield volcanos northern flank. Mount Warning is all that remains of the volcanos core and the Tweed Valley is a large erosion caldera carved from the eastern flank.
This park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, famed for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity (especially of rare, threatened and endemic species). It is an important refuge for many animals and home to impressive examples of ancient songbirds. Many plants and animals here are threatened speciesrelying on the protection of the park for survival.
