Binna Burra – Illinbah Circuit 16.6 km (class 4)
This circuit requires a high degree of fitness and experience.
From the car park descend through rainforest and open forest to the Coomera River Gwongoorool Pool. The dry rainforest on the river’s western side provides habitat for the black-breasted button-quail, a member of an ancient order of birds.
The circuit then follows the ‘Old Cedar Road’, once used by timber-getters in the early 1900s, crossing the Coomera River several times.
Track directions are not always obvious, specially on the river crossings.
These crossings can be hazardous after heavy rain and should not be attempted when the river is in flood. The circuit then leaves the river and climbs the Beechmont Range to return to Binna Burra (dangerous land slides are possible in some sections close to Bina Burra).
