In the Binna Burra section of Lamington National Park the Gwongoorool track starts from the car park near the Information Centre.
Gwongoorool is a large rock pool in the Coomera River. The track descends towards the Coomera Gorge and passes through a mixture of eucalypt forest and rainforest. It is quite steep in some areas and steps are often used.
During the descent, the track passes by the base of some beautiful cliff structures. This part of the track is also the beginning of the track to Illinbah. At the bottom of the Gorge, the track to Illinbah turns off to the right, but the track to Gwongoorool leads off to the left and soon reaches the Coomera River margins.
Allow plenty of time to walk back up the track. Gwongoorool is a good place to have lunch.... less
Be aware of leeches in summer, particularly after rain. The weather can change quickly so bring wet-weather gear and warm clothing. There are over 100 steps on this track and persons with any walking disabilities should consider them carefully before attempting this walk.
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.
