Lamington National Park and Binna Burra
Hazelwood Estate sits on the edge of Lamington National Park, home to the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, a World Heritage area. It is a spectacular place to visit, with ancient trees, lush rainforest, picturesque views and extensive walking tracks, not to mention its natural beauty and ecological importance.
Lamington National Park is nearly 1000 metres above sea level and an entirely different ecosystem and climate to Brisbane and the Gold Coast with temperatures 5-8 degrees cooler.
You can spend days exploring this magical part of the world, taking short walks or long treks deep into the forest, exploring steams, lookouts, gorges, and cliffs.
The area is known as Woonoongoora to its earliest inhabitants — the Yugambeh Aboriginal kinship group — and the mountains are sacred and spiritual places.
Lamington National Park has a rich volcanic history which contributes to the highly fertile nature of the soil on the plateau.
The park is also an important refuge for many animals and home to rare songbirds. Many of the plants and animals in the park are threatened species relying on the park for protection.
Book your stay and experience the world-renowned Lamington National Park.
Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
