Caves circuit, Lamington National Park

Multiple Locations

Caves circuit, in the Binna Burra section of Lamington National Park, winds up through open forest and rainforest to emerge on the road near the Binna Burra Mountain Lodge road entrance.

Pick up a copy of the self-guiding brochure produced by the Lamington Natural History Association for this circuit, and also the Lamington National Park Discovery Guide from the park's information centre.

Take in the brilliant views into the Coomera Valley, the Darlington Range and rhyolite cliff line. Possibly the largest intact stand of hoop pine in Australia can be seen along the Darlington Range.

As you pass through the Kweebani Caves, think back to a time when they sheltered the original inhabitants of this area—the Yugambeh Aboriginal kinship group. From the caves you’ll climb to the summit of Mount Roberts through rainforests of immense red cedars and other trees.

White-throated treecreepers, members of one of the oldest groups of songbirds, are frequently seen on this circuit. Koalas are often seen in open forest areas along the walk. Take care when walking beside the bitumen road to return to the start of the circuit, especially on weekends when traffic is busy, or alternatively walk back along the circuit.

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).
