Binna Burra, Scenic Rim Area
The Binna Burra section of Lamington National Park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, which includes the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world.
The Bellbird Circuit uses the first part of the Ships Stern track. You will pass through a small section of rainforest at first before the track leaves on the left. This now leads downwards past the junction of the "Horse Track" (a reminder of the days when horse-riding was a Binna Burra activity) and through more rainforest which changes to open forest and then eucalypt woodland near the cliff edges. The lookout gives good views of Ships Stern, Egg Rock, Turtle Rock and the Numinbah Valley.
This particular walk is very good for small children who want to experience the thrill of following a rainforest walk in the park, but caution is required near the cliffs of the lookout.
