Gwongoorool Track

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.

The six-kilometre Gwongoorool Track forms one section of the World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park. Commence at the Binna Burra car park near the local visitor information centre and descend towards the Coomera River with a pre-packed picnic lunch.

Hike through woody eucalypt forest and lush Gondwana rainforest accessed by over 100 stairs. Luckily you're quickly rewarded with views of sheer cliffs, waterfalls and black-breasted button quail. Spot the turn off to the Illinbah Circuit where you can purchase a permit for bush camping at the Illinbah clearing.

To access the freshwater Gwongoorool rock pool - home to blue Lamington crayfish and eels - turn left at the base of the gorge and continue along the Gwongoorool Track. The crystal clear waterhole is fed by a mountain stream and makes for a refreshing dip during summer. Allow two hours for the steep return journey back to the car park.

Note: This walk is renowned for being difficult immediately following wet weather.

Full Itinerary

This track starts at the car park near the park information centre and descends a series of steep rock steps (approximately 200 in total) past cliffs of volcanic ash (tuff), through open forest and rainforest to Gwongoorool Pool on the Coomera River. The river is important habitat (as are all of Lamington's streams) for hylid frogs (tree frog family), freshwater crayfish, eels and eastern water dragons. Eels inhabit the Coomera River. They bite when threatened and injuries have occurred.

Please Note: The Gwongoorool Track is managed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service. Please see the Queensland National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing web site for detailed maps and the latest park information, including opening hours and safety messages. When you are in the park, make sure you refer to signs at the start of the track for more information.
