Coomera Circuit

Binna Burra

This track showsoff some of Binna Burra's best assets and is one of the prettiest walks in this section of the park. The waterfalls are at their best after rain. The track does cross over the Coomera River several times and crossings can become tricky if water levels are high.

Waterfalls

Getting there

From Nerang go to Beechmont, then onto the Binna Burra campground. The track entrance is located at the top of the carpark.

Route/Trail notes

An easy trail to walk. Can become hazardous especially after rain. Some areas along the Border track have numerous exposed roots. The walk can be extended to include the Hobwee Circuit if you also want some views!

Well everyone said this was a special walk and it was. Sensational... literally. Such a great day did it in 4 hrs including lunch and tea and a few stops in the rock pool looking at the blue fresh water crays. Great track one I’ll be doing again

Amazing walk! Waterfalls at every turn. Track was quite muddy but not too bad. Took 4 hours including lunch.

Went on an amazing and soul soothing hike with the Brisbane Womens Hiking. Met some lovely ladies. Took us 6 hours, it said 7 hours going by the park map, pretty happy bout that. Stopped for about 40mins all up. I tell ya i will be sore tomorrow but wow it was soooo worth the effort. Such an extraordinary experience.

A stunning walk with plenty of waterfalls. It rained the night before the walk and again for about an hour during the walk so plenty of mud and leeches, but also plenty of water to make the falls look their best. The track was easy to follow and pretty straightforward but there was a few trees down along the track that needed to be clambered over. A highlight for me was seeing a huge blue crayfish up close and of course the Coomera Falls. My original intention was to follow the river up from Gwongarool Pool but was advised that it wasn't a good walk to do alone so did the circuit instead, but wasn't disappointed as it was a great day. I stayed at the lodge the night before and after so that I could get an early start and not have to drive home straight afterwards. A walk I would definitely like to do again. All up from lodge to lodge with side tracks to all the falls I clocked 20.5 kilometres in a time of 5 hours 53 minutes so made it back in time for lunch.

Beautiful hike with two stunning views along the way and plenty of waterfalls and creek crossings. We encountered one docile pademelon and several large crayfish who were quite reluctant to let us pass on the trail. The circuit with a few breaks took us 5 hours.

3rd time I've done this track but the 1st time I was lucky enough to see the famous Lamington blue cray, not just one but they were everywhere. It had rained a few days before, so the track was a bit muddy and slippery in some spots but still relatively easy going, with only 2 leeches spotted and removed from my friends shoes. So many waterfalls. So many beautiful spots for pictures.

Absolutely beautiful walk. Took us 6+hrs and we are of moderate fitness level.
There is very little signage once you get past the falls and quite a few little off shoots to other falls that are not on the map. Just a heads up as I did find this a bit stressful unfortunately.

Binna Burra is about a 2 hour drive from Brisbane and is located up in the hinterland of the Gold Coast.
Lamington National Park is the glorious rainforest that surrounds this area 🌿

They have a few walks to choose from up this way. Whether you are after a short stroll or a longer hike, I guarantee they will all be beautiful 🍃☘🦋🦎🦘 Today I hiked the Coomera Circuit 👟🚶‍♀️
This is a 17.5 km hike through lush, tropical rainforest which crosses Coomera River several times and leads you to some pretty magnificent waterfalls 🏞

They say to allow 7 hours for this hike. It took me 4.5 hours all up and that was stopping for MANY photo's and about 45 minutes at one of the falls rock hopping and playing in the water for a rest and grounding 🧘‍♀️💙💧
Don't go by Strava, it dropped out on me and missed about 7 km of this hike.
They have had a lot of rain up this way and it is so lush and green 💚🍃
But it has made the track slippery and boggy with a lot of debris as well as tree's fallen across the track in places. So just be mindful.

This hike is an easy hike but long. I am clumsy at the best of times, but by the home stretch I was tripping over my own feet 🥴

Coomera Circuit is a picturesque hike through our magical Lamington National Park.
This hike is one I highly recommend 🌄

Enjoy and go and live this life bright 🙏 💕

Beautiful walk. Had some intermittent rain throughout, but it just made the waterfalls look more spectacular, and the moss look greener. Lots of leeches, so wear DEET insect repellent if possible. Drop in for a cup of tea at the teahouse after! Hopefully next time they still have some lamingtons left :)

Karla on 3 Mar, 2019

Amazing walk. Reached the huge Coomera falls which took my breathaway. Will do again.

Rangadog on 12 Feb, 2019

Awesome walk with lots of waterfalls on the way. Had a swim in one of them ... Recommended... Fairly easy to do...

Ilya Kornienko on 25 Dec, 2018

Beautiful track! Lots of exposed tree roots and rocks to negotiate, and slippery after recent rain

Sally on 22 Dec, 2018

This track was amazing! Probably my favourite from Binna Burra! The views from the Coomera Falls look our are just breaktaking! We really want to make the trek into the gorge as from up top it looks like a stunning paradise down below. The trek was relatively easy but it’s long. We did the Coomera falls section first and then back out along the border track. The view from Joalah was amazing and we saw a blue tounge lizard just chillaxing.
This is going to be a favourite I feel!

Belindak77 on 10 Nov, 2018

Gorgeous walk. At a relaxed pace, about 4.5 hours, stopping to take pics and muck about. No real strenuous inclines, so it's nice for beginners

SageTreks on 8 Oct, 2018

One of my favorites.

Deano on 8 Sep, 2018

The most beautiful hike I’ve done all year. The gorge was amazing!

Set out with my walking friend at 9am. Walked along the Border track until we found the Mt Hobwee Circuit. We kept a good pace and reached the summit at noon. Every time we wanted to stop for a sip of water and then carried on about 20-30 meters ahead there was a way better spot. We had lots of laughs about this along the way. We had a nice break and look at the view at the summit while having a snack and a sip of water. We decided to go back down to the round rock & view to have lunch. After lunch headed back down the switchbacks and on the second half of the circuit. Ran into some very overgrown, but still recognisable trail until we got to the Coomera Circuit. We looked at the sign, and then the time 3pm and decided to go back via this way to finish off our hike. The fauna started changing almost immediately and the air got a bit more damp, we crossed over the water many times and saw many beautiful waterfalls along the way. The view from the Coomera Lookout was absolutely amazing. But, by this time it was 3:30 - I started to think we may not make it back to the car before dark. We continued on our walk and made it back to the main track with 2.1 miles to go. The sun was down and it was starting to get dark, but we picked up the pace a little and made it back to the car. All in all, we walked 8.5 hours and a total of 25 km. I definitely remember this walk, such a good day out.

This is how to celebrate living! We did this walk after it had been raining a bit so the many water crossings were very challenging but absolutely brilliant - a walking pole & leech repellent are a must. We were so surprised to see a few 'yabbies' along the way, & were later to find out that they were 'Lamington Spiny Crayfish' & are native to the area. This would have to be one of the most wonderful experiences of my life.
