Binna Burra Lodge thanks and congratulates the Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA) for celebrating it's ten year anniversary.

"Without the financial and technical support of QRA there is no way we would have been able to progress as far as we have in the recovery of Binna Burra after the bushfires in September 2019’’ said Steve Noakes, Chairperson of Binna Burra Lodge Ltd.

"Since the bushfire devastation we have had a great working relationship with all QRA officials who initially worked with the joint State Government and Binna Burra Taskforce to fast-track the reconstruction and opening of the single access road into the Binna Burra side of Lamington National Park and to help get Binna Burra back on its feet and welcome guests one year later."

QRA was also instrumental in arranging  $1.775 million awarded to Binna Burra in early 2020 to support our recovery as the largest single employer in the Beech Mountain community and as custodians of the Binna Burra Cultural Landscape. This was jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments through Category D of the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).  That funding went towards cleaning up the site, site master planning and to stabilise the cliff face to improve the sites safety and resilience into the future. 

QRA  also announced $500,000  of funding through the Local Economic Recovery (LER) Program to the Scenic Rim Regional Council (SRRC) for infrastructure works at Binna Burra Lodge. LER is jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments under the DRFA.  The funds will be used for improvements to the Binna Burra Tea House, camping and amenities  on site.

End.
