Binna Burra Mountain Lodge
Who Are We
Binna Burra Lodge holds the enviable status of being the first Australian accommodation property to attain the internationally-recognised Green Globe Certification for its best practice environmental performance, and was listed in the top 10 Eco-Lodges and Green Hotels in the World.
“Binna Burra Lodge has had what we now call a sustainable approach to tourism since its inception in 1933 when the concept of national parks was still new around the world. Nowadays we also have the framework of world heritage values. This results in Binna Burra Lodge sharing responsibility for conservation of our cultural and natural heritage through sustainable tourism management.” Steve Noakes Chairman, Binna Burra Lodge
Binna Burra’s Board and Staff are fully committed to implementing and demonstrating effective sustainable management. The Lodge have continued their commitment since the company was first formed in the 1930’s, and over the past 20 years, we have pioneered many practices which are now part of international sustainable tourism guidelines.
By designing and adopting site-specific best practice procedures as detailed in the Lodge’s Environmental Management Plan (EMP), Binna Burra has dramatically reduced its environmental impacts and has also benefited financially from the reductions in energy usage. Binna Burra Lodge Ltd has committed to benchmarking its energy and water consumption, total waste production and community commitment; along with implementing an integrated environmental and social policy.
Prior to and since its certification, Binna Burra had been recognised by a variety of environmental, ecotourism and tourism organisations. In 2018 during the annual conference of Ecotourism Australia held in Townsville, Binna Burra was one of a handful of Australian tourism enterprises recognised for 20 consecutive years of maintaining its ecotourism certification.
What to Expect
Positioned 800 metres above sea level amidst the sub-tropical rainforest of Lamington National Park (Gondwana Rainforests of Australian World Heritage Area) in the Gold Coast Hinterland, Binna Burra Mountain Lodge is centre stage to some of Australia’s most spectacular natural features. The unique isolation provides the perfect escape from the stresses of every day life and a chance to get back to basics, interact with nature and experience a freedom & sense of peace that few places can provide.
Binna Burra Lodge offers families, couples, schools/universities, and corporate groups everything from camping to 5 star apartments. Looking for something more than just accommodation? The Lodge has plenty of activities to get the heart pumping and help you enjoy the great outdoors. Take your pick from abseiling, flying fox, archery and exclusive wild walks!
