Completed along with Coomera Circuit, as Araucaria Track branches off Border Track on the way back to Binna Burra. 25km in total.
Worth the detour out to the lookouts, beautiful views from both Orchid Bower and Araucaria lookouts.
There are still quite a number of trees blocking the track in parts, which are fairly easy to navigate over, under or around.
As somebody else commented, watch out for the wait-a-while vine, I ended up with a few decent scratches on my arms... not nice! Definitely keep an eye out for those buggers and avoid if possible!
Will definitely do again when the orchids are in bloom.

Amazing walk! One of my favourites.
Great cardio up to the top, then the fun begins. Not for the faint hearted, but a lot of fun making your way across the ridgeline. Walked all the way to the very end (as far as you can safely go) and pleasantly surprised by the beautiful views. Not sure many people go all the way to the end, the track is not very clear in parts.

Loved this walk so much!
The initial ascent is moderately steep, but easy to follow. Exposed to the sun in places, so important to take plenty of water. Views from the first summit are incredible and make the climb all the worth while!!
The trail between the two peaks is slightly less obvious, involves rock hopping and scrambling, but I found it easy to navigate - look for the well worn rocks and you can't go wrong. This was my favourite part of the trail.
Gorgeous views from the second summit too, and lots of mozzies, so pack the spray (I forgot). From the second summit, follow the ridge line north to find the trail back down. Again, look for the worn rocks and you shouldn't go wrong. The descent was a little tricker, with lots of loose rocks in places, so watch your step. It's also pretty exposed again, so can get pretty hot. When you reach the circumvention track, take a left and it'll take you back to the carpark.
Took us two hours all up.
Awesome hike! Will definitely be back!
