Caves Circuit, Lamington National Park

Multiple Locations

This park has been impacted by recent severe weather events in Queensland. Please check park alerts for the latest information on access, closures and conditions.

Lush rainforests, ancient trees, spectacular views, extensive walking tracks, exceptional ecological importance and natural beauty make this Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area an outstanding place to visit.

From the information centre, the five-kilometre Caves Circuit winds up through open forest and rainforest to emerge on the road near the Binna Burra Mountain Lodge. Alternatively, begin this track from the Binna Burra Mountain Lodge road entrance and return via Binna Burra Road.

Caution: this circuit contains unstable surfaces. Rockfalls may occur on the track and in Kweebani Cave. Avoid lingering near the cave-move along the circuit and view the cave from a safe distance. Allow one-and-a-half hours to complete this walk of a moderately difficult grade.

The circuit provides excellent views into the Coomera Valley and passes a large red cedar and other rainforest tree species. The major cliff line opposite is of a flow of rhyolite and deposits of boulders and ash can be seen in overhanging caves. Possibly the largest intact stand of hoop pine can be seen along the Darlington Range.
