It is with great sadness that we share the news that Binna Burra Lodge has suffered significant structural loss during recent bushfires.
The Lodge site currently remains isolated with surrounding fires still burning uncontrolled, but we are pleased to say that all staff and guests were safely evacuated in advance of the fire.
Due to the loss of our business, we have only minimal staff to take care of the shutdown of services and coordinate the long process of rehabilitation.
We understand that some facilities for accommodation, dining and activities have been totally destroyed, but cannot know the full extent of the damage. Access to the site remains restricted at this time. This situation means that insurance assessors and Binna Burra management are not be able to assess the extent of the damage, nor begin the process of claims.
It is Binna Burra's intention to meet all its obligations and maintain its well-earned guest reputation now and into the future. Over the coming weeks we will be reaching out to all guests to advise on future and missed bookings. Our inability to access the Lodge site means that all processes are taking longer than we had hoped, we are waiting to find out the exact state of Binna Burra's facilities.
We're grateful of your patience during this time and please contact your travel insurance provider or credit card issuer to discuss any immediate financial assistance that may be available.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding with this ongoing matter. Further information will be posted to our website when available.
At present, we are locating a temporary office. Currently, we can only be contacted by email firstname.lastname@example.org

suppliers & service providers
Binna Burra is committed to meeting all of its obligations but due to the catastrophic loss of our business due to the QLD bushfires we ask all suppliers and providers to patiently await further advice. A complete list has been compiled and you will be receiving notification of payment and other arrangements in due course. A temporary office is currently being established to allow us to begin processing all administrative and accounts related business.
This effort is being led by the volunteer group Friends of Binna Burra (FOBBs), who have assisted Binna Burra Lodge with heritage preservation and specialized projects since 1984.
