This well marked track passes through a variety of vegetation, including subtropical rainforest, temperate forest and scrubby bushland on some of the more exposed sections. There are also spectacular views of Numbinbah Valley, creek crossings, waterfalls and the highlight is the having lunch on a rocky ridge at Surpirse Rock. All this in a walk that takes three to four hours.
From there you branch off onto Daves Creek Circuit itself and descend into the valley along cliff tops. Like most of the tracks in Lamington it is not particularly steep, and is not much of challenge to anyone with even moderate fitness.
The one challenging part is Surprise Rock. This is where we normally stop for lunch. You will need to scramble up the rocks, but it is not in anyway sheer or difficult to go up or down. The location and view makes the effort worthwhile.
Overall this track gives you a good walk, with great variety, without being too long or strenuous. If you could only do one hike at Binna Burra, this is the one to do. The only annoyance is its popularity, especially with hiking groups, however this was never a problem on the days we went there.
After the hike you will of course head to the Binna Burra Mountain Lodge Cafe for tea, coffee, beer, a meal and of maybe even a delicious Lamington National Park lamington.
