Description

The Coomera circuit is located in the Binna Burra section of Lamington National Park. This stunning national park covers 20,590 hectares and boasts extensive walking tracks along the McPherson Range, which allow visitors to explore the area's forests, creeks and waterfalls. Dramatic lookouts afford views over the Gold Coast, south-east Queensland and northern New South Wales.

Lamington is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area (formerly known as CERRA), which includes the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world. The scenic Coomera circuit passes through subtropical and warm temperate rainforest and giant brush box forest of Lamington National Park.

The gorge is 160 metres deep. Views from the lookout platform provide dramatic evidence of the power of erosion, which has cut through a thick resistant rhyolite lava flow. The circuit climbs beside Coomera Gorge, crossing the river several times before rejoining the Border Track and returning to Binna Burra.

Walk Hints

This walk requires a moderate level of fitness. Allow a full day and take plenty of rest breaks. Wear insect repellent to discourage leeches. Take food, drinking water and a raincoat. The river crossings along this walk involve rock-hopping: they can be hazardous after heavy rain and should not be attempted when the river is in flood. Stay behind the safety fences.

Best Time To Go

The altitude of Lamington National Park provides a great escape from the Summer heat, although winter walkers are rewarded with clear views and a lesened chance of rain and leeches.
