Bruce has suggested a nice short walk along the Gwongoorool Pool track at Binna Burra. And before you start wondering: He has checked and, yes, the walk is open

Please make sure your RSVP is up to date the night before and text the Organiser on the day if you find you can't make it at the last minute.
THE HIKE - 6km - approx. 2.5 hours; Grade - easy:
This is a 6 km walk from Binna Burra Information Centre. It is a gentle walk and will allow you time to relax, admire the scenery and to get to know others. On the way we will pass Barrabareen Falls and zigzag down past piccabeen palms to reach the pool. Eels are to be found there.We should be back in time for lunch at the tea house.
After lunch those still keen can wander up to the lodge and admire the magnificent views or try out one of the 1 or 2km walks. We can decide on the day.
Binna Burra section of Lamington National Park - bottom carpark - near the National Park office
Lunch at the Lamington Teahouse
From Nerang, take Price Street out of town and follow the signs 26km to Beechmont. Binna Burra is another 10km on from the roundabout (or go to www.whereis.com, using Binna Burra as destination). Allow 50mins from Surfers, 60 mins from Coolangatta or 90 mins from Brisbane
WHAT TO BRING: Plenty of water, lunch and snacks, good hiking shoes, hat, sunscreen and insect repellent. Recommend a hiking pole and a spare pair of hikers for the creek crossings as it's highly likely you'll get wet feet. Members are also asked to bring a first aid kit on every hike.
We'll pass around the hat again for a $1 contribution to cover our registration on the Meetup website which is around $170 per year. Any additional funds will be donated to the Springbrook SES.
