Positioned about 800 metres above sea level amidst the sub-tropical rainforest of Woonoongoora (Lamington National Park), Binna Burra is centre stage to some of Australia’s most spectacular natural features. The iconic logo with the colourful parrot is well loved …. and, now, also well travelled!

The Everest base Camp sits at 5,364 metres above sea level (17,598 feet) and that’s where the Binna Burra parrot has been recently spotted – on the sweater of Binna Burra shareholder and former staff member, Doug Cleary.

Doug, and his wife Nane were embedded in the post 2019 bushfire history at Binna Burra when they became the first couple to be married at Mt Roberts, on the site of the devastated former historic lodge.

For trekkers like Doug who are looking for unlimited adventure, peace, and breathtaking mountain views – it could be the Himalayan or at a more modest elevation, here at Binna Burra, inside Woonoongoora (Lamington National Park).
