Quick Guide to Binna Burra – Gold Coast

Free things to do on the Gold Coast

Binna Burra is located in the Gold Coast hinterland, within Lamington National Park. Binna Burra has a number of hikes, tumbling waterfalls, breathtaking lookouts, caves and fern gullies waiting to be explored. Why not grab your best friends and hire a cottage in the rainforest for a weekend away. In the post, you will find information on hikes, waterfalls, and accommodation at Binna Burra.


Hiking is one of my all-time favourite activities, so I was super excited to explore the region by foot. I was only able to do a short hike during my visit, which gave me a taste of the area and a desire to explore more.

The trail I explored was the Bellbird Circuit, which is a short trail (2kms return) that leads to an open lookout, offering stunning views of Ship’s Stern, Egg Rock, Turtle Rock and the Numinbah Valley.

Alcheringa Lodge – Country living at its finest. We hired the main house for our weekend getaway and it was perfect in every way. The highlights were the massive deck overlooking the valley, the outdoor spa, the bathroom of your dreams and the fireplaces – after all, it isn’t a country house without an open fire, or three.

This 4 bedroom, three bathroom house comfortably slept 8 people and made the perfect weekend getaway.

Instead of explaining it to you, I am going to show you.
