Help in our recovery, rehabilitation and presentation of archives as well as documenting and presenting the 2019 bushfire impacts.
Retired Journalist and Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service (QNPWS) Senior Information Officer, Don Marshall, has had a lifetime of interest in the natural history in Queensland and its protection. As a long-standing shareholder of Binna Burra Lodge, he also has a keen interest in the early history of the formation of the Lamington National Park and Binna Burra Lodge. Don has kindly produced a 200-page chronicle of newspaper clippings, articles, photographs and items from the 1920s and 1930s documenting development and growth of Binna Burra Lodge; Lamington National Park; and the National Parks Association of Queensland. He is donating this limited edition anthology book to assist in the recovery of Binna Burra Lodge.
All of the donations from the sale of this book will go towards (i) the recovery, rehabilitation and presentation of archives retrieved after the 2019 bushfires, (ii) the new library in Groom’s Cottage and (iii) to document and develop interpretive displays illustrating what happened in September last year.
‘This compilation is in effect an overview of history leading to the establishing and developing of Binna Burra Lodge to the beginning of World War II through the medium of printed matter, particularly newspaper items.’ – Don Marshall
