Description: Join us for the final activity for 2020 to explore Daves Creek Circuit in the Binna Burra Section of Lamington National Park. This walk is noted for its variety in vegetation types as the track moves through the rainforest into open heathland with lookouts providing panoramic views over Numinbah Valley. Hopefully, there will still be signs of new growth and plenty of blossoms on the plants as the seasons move from spring to summer.
From Binna Burra, the trail follows the Border Track through sub-tropical rainforest before veering left and descending along the Ships Stern Circuit then branching right to the heathland section along the escarpment overlooking Numinbah Valley.
As we move clockwise around the circuit, we’ll explore Surprise Rock, enjoy the views from Numinbah and other lookouts as well as have a look at Molongolee Cave and wonder at the forces of nature that formed these natural wonders.
Then we dive back into the rainforest before rejoining the Border Track and back to the Binna Burra Teahouse to enjoy well-earned refreshments.
