Description
Waypoints (0)

Please note: This trail is closed due due to damage of a wildfire. The entire Binna Burra section of Lamington National Park is temporarily closed until declared safe. For updates: https://parks.des.qld.gov.au/parks/lamington/about.html#Caves_circuit A nice circuit walk starting from Binna Burra lodge. Either way is good, though heading down the road first means it only gets better from there... Slowly makes it's way back up to the lodge which is not strenous. Passes lookouts over the coomera river, large overhangs (not caves as such) and a number of microclimates and geological features. There are spectacular ephephytes and examples of opportunistic plants after opened canopies.

Nice little track lots of steps not caves as such but still nice this walk was added to the end of the lower bellbird track circuit to save us walking up the road - quite enjoyed it

Very quiet. No one else except me. Some nice views of the valley along the way. At the end of the walk, I walked back down the road to my car. Some great views down towards Hinze Dam on the walk back.

I really liked this walk its not very hard the paths are well used. From the upper entrance I would defiantly go down the road and start by the information centre and walk up I saw a koala and a wallaby there are some great view across the valley

Absolutely amazing. So much to see. Beautiful views and a nice challenge. Circuit currently has fallen trees blocking areas of the path but they are easily passable. Don’t let them throw you off and make sure to persevere!

The views are really nice but half of the track is walking on Bina Burra road so I’m not sure why it has raving reviews...

Great for little legs, plenty to keep them interested. They even loved the snake!

A beautiful hike through the forest etc.Not too hard starting from the Lodge but a reasonable workout back up the road.Better combining it with the Lower Bellbird track taking you back to the Lodge and making it a good long hike.

Not what I expected. Not a circuit either. I recommend starting at the information centre if you want to go up and back. Combine this with the Lower Bellbird Track and you’ve got yourself a good hike. Took me 50 minutes one way. Fitbit said 3.5kms.

Awesome easy trail . Myself and my partner are just starting to get into hiking and this was a easy trail todo with minimal hiking experience. Highly recommended. It can be abit slippery when wet after a rainy day so make sure you wear good shoes . And the views were amazing. Would definitely do it again.

This track has been closed for some time due to extensive damage from tropical cyclone Debbie. It’s advised to check with Qld Parks and Wildlife first. (8/1/18)

This is a wonderful walk through the classic Gold Coast hinterland. Great caves on the cliff face. When we were there the waterfall was creating an incredible rainbow across the whole valley. Never seen anything like it !!! Try the home made pies at the binna burra tea house afterwards!
