Be part of one of Australia’s iconic nature-based tourism social enterprises – Binna Burra Lodge

WORDS: Steve Noakes PHOTOGRAPHY Supplied - Binna Burra Lodge

  • Established in 1933, Binna Burra is located within the World Heritage listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia – at Lamington National Park in the scenic rim of the Gold Coast Hinterland.
  • It is a destination with some of the most intimate and glorious natural experiences in Australia.
  • Binna Burra is now back open, and still on top of the world, after closing for 12 months from 8 September 2019, when major bushfires destroyed many of the core heritage-listed buildings within the Binna Burra Cultural Landscape.
  • Binna Burra has a rich history in regards to the establishment of national parks in Queensland, conservation, environmental education and, increasingly, indigenous connection to the location.

Over the past nine decades the shares in our unlisted public company have been relatively tightly held by generations of families but, as part of the bushfire recovery process, that is changing now with some one thousand families and individuals as shareholders.  The Board is keen to continue to expand the shareholder base for future generations as the custodians of what is probably the largest ‘ecotourism collective’ in Australia.
