Binna Burra, Lamington National Park

National Parks and Reserves Natural Attractions

Set yourself up in one of the camping areas or nearby accommodation and spend days exploring this magical part of the world. Take short walks or long treks deep into the park’s forest, exploring boulder-strewn mountain streams, dramatic lookouts, rugged cliffs, plunging gorges and secluded, mountain-top camp sites.

As you explore the park, pay homage to the earliest inhabitants—the Yugambeh Aboriginal kinship group. They know this area as Woonoongoora and the mountains are sacred and spiritual—places to be nurtured and respected.

There is a rich volcanic history under the spreading greenery of the park. Tamborine, Springbrook, Beechmont and Lamington are remnants of the Tweed shield volcano’s northern flank. Mount Warning is all that remains of the volcano’s core and the Tweed Valley is a large erosion caldera carved from the eastern flank.

This park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, famed for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity (especially of rare, threatened and endemic species). It is an important refuge for many animals and home to impressive examples of ancient songbirds. Many plants and animals here are threatened species—relying on the protection of the park for survival.
