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.

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!

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 :)

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

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

A great circuit for a enjoyable walk as a group. Picturesque forest and creek crossings with super old giant trees in some parts. Also spotted the Coomera River crayfishes.

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!

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

One of my favorites.

One of the best walks I’ve done in lamington, hands down! Amazing views.

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.

Huge walk, enjoyed our dinner

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.

Fantastic walk! Took us 5 1/2 hours at a steady pace with 30 mins of stopping all up. Lots of creek crossings and waterfalls, might be a bit hard to cross after a lot of rain and there would be lots of leeches after some rain. The rain stopped about 4 days before we got there so we didn't see any leeches. We did see 2 snakes (big python and a whip snake), 6 big lizards, goanna, frogs, paddy melons, crayfish, colorful birds and some pesky bush turkeys. All in all a really really nice walk.

Easy trailed hike with a small amount of rock hopping. Lots of beautiful waterfalls and fungi after the recent rains but also lots of leeches!

Lia Skye on 3 Dec, 2017

So beautiful, lots of water flowing. Interesting times with all the creek crossings!
Very nice days walk

Lisa on 21 Nov, 2017

Very picturesque walk with many waterfalls along the way to visit. Coomera falls were of course the highlight. Were fortunate enough to see several of the blue crayfish in the ponds and even had one large one (almost a lobster really) out of the water and crossing the track. Quite a few creek crossings to navigate but not overly difficult, just the potential slippery rock risk. Track markings could be improved around the water areas. Picked up several leeches and had a fat red-bellied black sunning itself on the track. A relatively easy walk that took us 6 hours to complete. Very pretty walk though, thoroughly recommend.

Lovely walk, falls are terrific from the platform.
Lots of creek crossings but nothing to daunting,highly recommended

Bribie 61 on 20 Jul, 2017

Only walked to the Falls and back to Binna Burra as I had a bunch of kids with me and I was on a time limit. Did 9km return. Beautiful and the Falls were spectacular.

Lovely day for a fantastic walk. Went anti-clockwise, which made the walk back easier. Met a friendly guide along the way, who thankfully suggested taking the Tullawallal track back - much sunnier and brighter than the Border Track that time of day. So many waterfalls, spoilt for choice. Fairly easy walk, with the creek crossings the only real time to take extra care. All the falls were spectacular and different in their own way. Coomera falls was breathtaking. Left Binna Burra at 9am and returned at 3pm, after having a 15 minute morning tea and 20 minute lunch break.

Ranga on 6 May, 2017

The most scenic walk I have done, time is right on it we had a good half hour stop for lunch, and 2 x 10 mins stops. We are not very fit and I had a 25lbs pack (training for Overlander) and we took 7hrs 20 mins. Loved the many waterfalls and the blue crayfish, impressive stuff!
