This walk is up at Binna Burra. This walk is a very pleasant, interesting walk with

varied vegetation - rainforest, tall eucalyptus woodlands, mallee scrub, open

heathland and sedgelands. There are good views of Numinbah Valley and I think we

can see Mt Warning (it is one of the reasons I want to go back again). The walk is

on graded tracks and starts from Binna Burra. This is an excellent walk for beginners

and experienced walker alike. We will have 2 Banana Breaks but possibly no

morning tea. We will definitely have an early lunch on Surprise Rock which is a dyke

that has resisted weathering and stands above the surrounding country side. It is

well worth the very short climb to the top. We return via a section of the Ships Stern

Track, with a short detour to Nagarigoon Falls and finally the Border Track to the Top

Car Park and café, which is called the Binna Burra Tea House. After a quick break at

the café I was keen to do an ‘encore’ walk and do the short walk to Kweebani Caves.

It is supposed to be just a 2 km return trip. It starts from the information centre which

is about 1 km down the hill from the cafe. I have done this mini walk once before and

wanted to go back again and revisit it.

Please note that Terry Silk’s proposed walk for the 3 rd Sept namely the Noosa Trails

walk was postponed for a month to the Sunday of the October long weekend. The

trip was postponed as he had another commitment come up. We needed a

replacement walk and I suggested this walk to go on the program as the wildflowers

on the walk are supposed to be very good# and after all the rain earlier in the year

the wildflowers should be excellent. No one else suggested anything else so by

default I can only conclude that this is the best walk possible for this weekend.

Notes # see the book by John and Lyn Daly Take a walk in South east Queensland “ at page 202

where he states “(This circuit is the most botanically diverse walk in the park”).
