Binna Burra, Natural Bridge or Springbrook Plateau?

Heading south from Brisbane towards Sydney, planning to detour via Tamborine NP, then one of the three mentioned. We have visited Lamington (Green Mountain) before. Binna Burra and Springbrook Plateau both involve lengthy out and back detours, whilst Natural Bridge seems to be on a through route. We like to do hikes of 2-5 kms and enjoy viewpoints etc. Are Binna Bura or Springbrook Plateau worth the extra Kms?

Ok!

At Binna Burra there is a nice camp ground - but sites are a little packed in.

There are some nice walks thru a rock plateau and archway which are pretty and give nice views.

The area at the top of the Lamington signposts on the ride almost are pretty.

All worthwhile visiting!

Natural Bridge is beautiful but only a short walk.

I recommend the walk to the base of Purlingbrook Falls.

Arctic Beech trees at Best of all lookout is also a short walk with good views.

Thanks guys. I found the Queensland NP website ( much more user-friendly than the equivalent NSW site) which has some good outline maps of viewpoints and walks, and it looks like it's worth driving out to Best of all lookout, then retracing our steps and taking the Natural Bridge through road south - we will have at least a week to get to Sydney, so probably lots more route questions to come yet!

FYI

As you head south and once over the border, you might also enjoy visiting Mt Warning.

Enjoy!

We did the cave walk at Binna Burra. One of my fav things we did in Oz. the views were spectacular. Saw a waterfall as well. Just to clarify, it was mostly walking along the mountain edge so many views of below and across to the other mountains. The caves themselves are shallow large rocks.
