Description: The Coomera River Circuit is a picturesque on-track walk passing through rainforest and giant brush box forest. A lookout platform provides excellent views of the 160m gorge and the Coomera Falls; a great spot for morning tea. The track then follows the river upstream through the rainforest, crossing the river several times allowing views of waterfalls and hopefully, lamington crays, before re-joining the Border track for the trek back to Binna Burra and a cup of coffee. Rock-hopping is necessary at the river crossings with the possibility of wet feet.
