One of Australia's longest-established nature-based resorts, Binna Burra Lodge, was founded in 1933 by Arthur Groom and Romeo Lahey. These two pioneering conservationists shared a vision to create a place where people could stay and experience the beauty of the Lamington National Park rainforest. Through interpretive walks and educational programs, they believed more people would become committed to preserving this natural wilderness for future generations.

Lamington National Park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, the most extensive subtropical rainforest in the world. The area is renowned for its beautiful waterfalls and more than 160 kilometres of walking trails, including the 21.4 kilometre Border track built in the late 1930s and the Binna Burra Caves circuit which has views out over the Coomera Valley waterfalls.

Binna Burra's Board and staff are fully committed to implementing and demonstrating effective sustainable management. We have been doing this since the company was first formed in the 1930s, and over the past 20 years, we have pioneered many practices which are now part of international sustainable tourism guidelines.

We aim to achieve the international standards for sustainable tourism laid out by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) in order to ensure our business operations:

Maximize social and economic benefits to the local community and minimize any negative impacts

Maximize benefits to our cultural heritage and minimize any negative impacts

Maximize benefits to our world heritage listed natural environment and minimize negative impacts

As an example, by designing and adopting site-specific best practice procedures as detailed in the Lodge's Environmental Management Plan (EMP), Binna Burra has dramatically reduced its environmental impacts and has also benefited financially from the reductions in energy usage.

This effort was so significant that Binna Burra Mountain Lodge first earned Green Globe Certification in 2001. In doing so, Binna Burra was also the first private company in Australasia to achieve certification under the international Green Globe standards for sustainable tourism practices.

Prior to and since its certification, Binna Burra had been recognized by a variety of environmental, ecotourism and tourism organizations. In 2018 during the annual conference of Ecotourism Australia held in Townsville, Binna Burra was one of a handful of Australian tourism enterprises recognized for 20 consecutive years of maintaining its ecotourism certification.
