Border track, Lamington National Park

Multiple Locations

Delve into the heartland of this ancient landscape on this full-day hike between Green Mountains and Binna Burra. Boasting stunning scenery and spectacular views, the Border track is the backbone of the national park and part of the longer Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk.

Walk the full length of the track, or spin off onto the network of other walks and circuits. You’ll feel miles from anywhere as you hike through subtropical and temperate rainforests, into lush gullies and valleys, over crystal mountain streams, past stunning waterfalls, and along prominent ridge lines.

This park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, famed for its ongoing geological processes, evolutionary history, and diversity (especially of rare, threatened and endemic species).
