Take the turn off to Beechmont and head straight up the mountain. Binna Burra Lodge is located 10km from the roundabout, at the top of the mountain.

History

One of Australia's longest-established nature-based resorts, Binna Burra Mountain Lodge was founded in 1933 by Arthur Groom and Romeo Lahey. These two pioneering conservationists shared a vision to create a place where people could stay and experience the beauty of the Lamington National Park rainforest. Through interpretive walks and educational programs, they believed more people would become committed to preserving this natural wilderness for future generations.

Eco Initiatives

Environmental Management Overview

Binna Burra's Board and staff are fully committed to implementing and maintaining environmental best practice management procedures in all areas.

By designing and adopting site-specific best practice procedures as detailed in the Lodge's Environmental Management Plan (EMP), Binna Burra has dramatically reduced its environmental impacts and has also benefited financially from the reductions in energy usage.

Friends of Binna Burra

Friends of Binna Burra (FOBBS) came into existence in 1985. The idea arose from a group of like-minded people who shared a love of nature and the bush and were interested in preserving and maintaining the special beauty that is Binna Burra. Over the years this has evolved to also include, within this mantle, an interest in the buildings and history of this World Heritage Listed site.

Lamington National Park

Stretching out across the McPherson Ranges, this UNESCO World Heritage listed area comprises Australia’s largest remnant of sub-tropical rainforest.

Lamington is characterised by rugged mountain scenery, breathtaking lookouts, tumbling waterfalls, caves, fern gullies, and more than 160kms of Australia’s most diverse walking trails.

On the highest peaks, misty forests of ancient Antarctic beech trees date back over 2000 years, whilst in the valley, crystal clear streams cascade over moss covered boulders into deep mountain pools.
