Binna Burra Mountain Lodge & Campsite

Binna Burra Rd., via Beechmont, Lamington National Park, Queensland, 4211, Australia

At the doorstep of Lamington National Park, this historic, eco-certified, back-to-basics mountain lodge and campground is a birdwatcher's paradise, with sweeping views across Heritage-listed rain forest and more than 160 km (99 miles) of walking trails. Dating back to 1933, Binna Burra's rustic lodge rooms and log cabins are cozy, secluded, and simply furnished, with a deliberate absence of TVs, radios, telephones, and clocks. Luxury Sky Lodge suites and apartments—featuring spa baths, fireplaces, LCD TVs, fully self-contained kitchen and laundry facilities, and accommodation for up to 10 people—make a great option for groups and families. Budget travelers, meanwhile, can camp on-site in tents, powered vans, or furnished safari-style tents with verandas (A$65–$105 for 2–6 people). Activities include bird walks, spotlighting for nocturnal animals, bush tucker tours, archery, abseiling, and a Flying Fox zip-line ride. There's also a well-stocked library, gift shop, guest lounge, and quaint Lamington Teahouse, while the lodge's Clifftop dining room gives guests a communal dining experience and panoramic views over Coomera Valley.
