For the third year running, Binna Burra Lodge again welcomed a group of Architecture students from Griffith University as they conducted a field trip to assist them on an assessment project.

On behalf of Binna Burra, the students were addressed by Emeritus Professor Gordon Holden, the Chair of the Lodge Design Committee for the new lodge to be built on the site of the former heritage listed lodge destroyed in the September 2019 ‘Black Summer’ bushfires. They were also addressed by Tim Medhurst OAM, the Senior Development and Infrastructure Consultant for Binna Burra.

‘We enjoy having such study groups visit the Binna Burra Cultural Landscape’ said Steve Noakes, Chair of Binna Burra Lodge. ‘It continues a 90 year tradition of Binna Burra’s collaboration with Universities in Australia and from overseas, and, in this case, our very close partnership with Griffith University based here in South East Queensland.’
