Eight months after the September 2019 bushfires which ripped through the heart of the historic Binna Burra Lodge, the ‘fire-proof’ safe with valuable Binna Burra records has been retrieved.

About three-quarters of the contents of the archive safe survived.

‘The material is now safely stored indoors in plastic containers’ said Steve Noakes, Chairperson of Binna Burra Lodge. ‘With the assistance of the Queensland Department of Environment and Science, we are also getting advice from archaeologists for advice on material conservation questions.’

Meantime, all the remaining archives will be digitally copied for future safe-keeping.

The Binna Burra Cultural Landscape was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 31 December 2002 as a place important in the course of Queensland's natural and cultural history, as well as its aesthetic significance and its long and strong association with Romeo Lahey who was significant not only in establishing Binna Burra but in having Lamington National Park gazetted in 1915, following early work begun by RM Collins.

The archives are now in sealed boxes at Binna Burra
