Caves Circuit

Binna Burra
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

From the information centre, this interesting track winds up through open forest and rainforest to emerge on the road opposite the ship's Stern track entrance. It provides excellent views into the Coomera Valley and passes a large red cedar and fine specimens of other rainforest tree species. A range of volcanic rock types and formations can be observed. Koalas are often seen in open forest area along the walk. Take care when walking down the bitumen road to return to the start of the circuit, especially on weeekends when traffic is heavy. A self guiding brochure for this circuit is available at the information centre, Lamington Teahouse and at Binna Burra Lodge.

Getting there

How do you get to the start of the walk?


Route/Trail notes

I personally haven't seen a koala there in 15 years. Start this walk from the Binna Burra Lodge entrance. It saves having to walk up such a steep climb on the way back. The walk up along the road is an easier climb. I have walked both ways and coming back to the Lodge via the road is 7mins quicker and easier on your body rather than coming from the infomation centre along the track.


Permits required for back country camping, Costs involved at staying at Binna Burra Lodge, and the Binna Burra campsite as well. (I would personally try the campsite and get the full experience)

Nice short walk, very hot in the afternoon summer sun.

Not really caves... more overhangs

Have done this walk a few times over the years and its the driest I have seen it, but that just could be the time of year it is. The main point of interest is the Kweebani Caves, which were created by wind and rain erosion and were used for shelter and cooking. The track passes through these caves

Not bad. The caves are impressive.

Not bad, but there are better walks at Binna Burra if you're short on time

One of my favourites. The caves section is amazing. Other parts have stunning views.

We walked up from the info centre. Not too steep, but only one major cave and a few "minor" sort of caves. Good walk and some views down the valley.

A nice walk. Bit hot in summer.

Great views of the rocky caves half way along the track. Done this one a couple of times over the years & is always enjoyable. Either direction you walk it it ends up hill, but its not a hard walk.

Not a bad walk with a really impressive overhand-cave.
