Client Testimonials

We held our annual regional sales kick off at Binna Burra Lodge in February 2017. While the success of such an event largely depends on the quality of the content presented, the location and facilities also play a very important part. For Toshiba, Binna Burra provided us with a magnificent natural environment, coupled with excellent facilities and accommodation. Our delegates were able to switch off from the stress of their daily work lives, and immerse themselves in our program of events. Afterwards, we were able to unwind while taking in the awesome views overlooking Lamington National Park, topped off with accommodation that met with everyone’s approval. In the words of Toshiba’s National Sales and Marketing Manager – “This is spectacularly beautiful”. 

Andrew Hopper, SE QLD Regional Manager – Electronic Imaging Division

We loved it. What a superb venue you guys have there.

Apparently it was our best one yet! Loved the activities, location, accommodation, food, drinks, everything.

Noeline was an absolute pleasure to work with and I know she went above and beyond what is required of her, she is so thorough and organised and nothing was too much trouble for her, and any request I had for her was done in a prompt manner and a “no problem” I will just do that now, go and get that now, let them know etc – she is just a superstar.

And massive compliments to the rest of your team – Dean, Luke, Damian, Katie, Morgan, Erin & Debi (was that the lady on the bar that looked after us? If not that is who I mean – sorry lots of names to remember) – from the guides introducing themselves at dinner the night before, having a chat, sitting with us at Breakfast on Friday morning, telling us about Binna Burra and the area, showing interest in who they spoke to, the can do attitude they showed to see to anything we requested, the friendly, fabulous attitude of all of them is a credit to your business.

You should be very proud. They were all big contributors to my conference being so successful and running as smoothly as it did. So kudos to them – they all rock! And more importantly they are the sort of people that should be in Hospitality – as they continually showed and demonstrated it all weekend! (not so common in the industry these days).

Please pass on my most sincere thanks to them all (and if I have left any names off – please add them because there is not one person that I encountered that this isn’t directed at).

Thanks for checking up on us on Friday and for the follow up – you deserve a big thankyou as well.

Over the past 2 years Laing O’Rourke (Global Construction company) has enjoyed the friendly hospitality and magnificent surrounds of the beautiful Lamington National Park and in particular the iconic mountain accommodation of Binna Burra Lodge.

Approximately 100 staff have visited the Lodge staying 2 to 3 days each time to be challenged both mentally and physically to scale their way to leadership excellence.

“Binna Burra has proved to be the perfect location for the delivery of our leadership development programs”, stated John Wood, People Development Manager for Laing O’Rourke Australia.

“We have a very strong branding around our Leadership Development framework and it’s all about mountaineering. So when it came to finding a suitable ‘mountain’ venue which was conveniently located to both Brisbane and Gold Coast and the corresponding airports we had to look no further than Binna Burra.”

“Being able to take our employees away from their busy, noisy and typically urban environments, which construction is renowned for, and place them in an environment such as Binna Burra is a rare treat. The great features of the Lodge apart from the obvious (the location) is the easy going and very resourceful staff and the extra-curricula activities to tap into. All our programs have a great deal of experiential learning built in and being able to use the Flying Fox, High Ropes, Abseiling, etc… is fantastic to stimulate the creative thinking and problem solving abilities of the participants.

The accommodation is more than sufficient with a diverse range of options to suit any budget. The conference rooms are also perfect for meeting our needs. We don’t need nor do we want the typical ‘sterile’ option which is the norm for nearly all conference facilities so being able to run workshops in the old Barn or the Pottery Shed or Library reinforces the innovative approach we are teaching in the programs. It’s amazing how an open fire can be a source great reflection and relaxation especially when it forms part of your training room.

Best of all is the relaxed, flexible and resourceful staff. No problem, no matter how weird or wonderful it is, is ever too hard for the Binna Burra crew to solve. Sure you may need to be a bit flexible on your end but isn’t that just life, it’s certainly what our leadership teachings is all about.

Binna Burra, it’s got it all and more!

We have just returned from a two day stay in your lodge and I simply felt compelled to write you a letter of thanks.

From my initial enquiry phone call right through to stepping into our vehicles to return home, the level of service we received was exemplary.

We had a brainstorming session in the Library, accommodation in the SkyLodge and a half-day of activities with Dean. The Library proved to be the perfect venue where our conversation and creation of ideas flowed freely. The Skylodge accommodation was second to none with views to die for and it was a great way to unwind after the productive day we had. But the icing on the cake was Dean, our guide. He took us through a range of activities that I know will resonate throughout the team for years to come.

I had wanted to take my Management team somewhere that we could work on strategy and repair some of the issues we had internally, but during our stay it became absolutely clear – We need to model our business on yours. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and needless to say, we will return.

Congratulations on running such a tight ship and thank you so much for giving me such clarity.
