Take a drive 90 minutes from Brisbane or 75 minutes from Gold Coast airport, up winding roads through Beechmont to Binna Burra and you’ll find yourself immersed in a magical rainforest wilderness 800m above sea level, with impressive views across cascading valleys out to the coast.
Set in Lamington National Park within the Scenic Rim, and a part of the world-heritage listed Gondwana Rainforest area of South East Queensland, a visit to this pristine sub-tropical rainforest is a life-changing, ‘bucket-list’ experience.
With over 160km of trails to explore, here you’ll feel a lifetime away after hiking through the canopy of green to epic views and thundering waterfalls shrouded in mist and crisp mountain air.
From bushwalking to bird watching, chasing waterfalls, exploring rock pools and even spotting a koala or two perched in the trees, you will be enchanted with this wilderness wonderland.
As you explore the area, pay homage to the earliest inhabitantsthe Yugambeh people. They know this area as Woonoongoora and named Binna Burra “where the beech tree grows”, in honour of the thousand year old Antarctic Beech trees that it is home to.
To stay and explore the area at your leisure, there are plenty of accommodation options available here courtesy of Binna Burra Lodge, one of Australia’s ecotourism pioneers, along with national park camping.

We are proud of our diverse communities within the region. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the many lands within the Scenic Rim - the Mununjali in the Centre, the Wangerriburra to the East, the Ugarapul to the West, and all those of the Yugambeh and Jagera language groups. We pay respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
