Binna Burra is a rural suburb in the Scenic Rim Region in Queensland. It borders New South Wales.
As of the 2016 Census, there were four people living in Binna Burra.
Binna Burra is a long thin valley bordered by the ridge of the Darlington Range to the west and the ridge of the Beechmont Range to the east. It is bordered to the south by the boundary between Queensland and New South Wales.
The Coomera River goes up in the far south of the Binna Burra and runs through the north along the valley and leaves the area to the north.
Binna Burra is almost completely located within the Lamington National Park, excluding a small portion on the eastern border of area where Binna Burra Lodge is located.
Its name translates to “where the beech tree grows.” The old Antarctic Beech in these parts grow among a variety of plant and animal life that comprises the Lamington National Park so grand. The caves that were used by the Aborigines for shelter and cooking are just one of the special secrets you’ll discover as you explore this area.
It’s just an hour from the Gold Coast, but you will feel like another part of the world when you enter this hinterland haven. The chaos of city living fades away as you explore the thundering waterfalls covered in mist and the crisp rainforest air. Enjoy the rock pools, home to blue and white spiny Lamington crayfish, stare in awe at a koala or two perched in the trees and stumble across pademelon kangaroos, goannas, and more than 600 species of birds.
It may have just 4 residents and there is plenty of accommodation for both local and foreign tourists, including the National Park camping as well as other options like the Binna Burra Lodge, rated as one of world’s best eco-lodges and green hotels.
Binna Burra is in a beautiful, natural setting. The flipside to this charming and idyllic sight is the pests that are ready to attack structures as soon as property owners let down their guards.
There is no ant season in Australia, but we tend to see more of these pests during the summer. They can be found crawling around the house, especially the kitchen. It doesn’t matter if you have the cleanest kitchen. Ants will come because this area of the house offer different food sources.
Ants are a nuisance, but they can also be a problem because they come out in full force to forage for food and stock them in the nests in preparation for the colder months.
To deal with ants, hire a professional ant exterminator to ensure you get the best treatment for your situation.
These highly sociable insects can take maximum advantage of any space that provides food and moisture. Cockroaches are quite worrying because they can lay eggs throughout any chosen area. Having a clean house is important, but even the cleanest of homes can be infested by cockroaches. This is because tiny deposits of grease, sugars, etc. in hard-to-reach places such as in drains, behind refrigerators, behind dishwashers, and cracks and crevices can attract cockroaches.
Cockroach infestation should be avoided because cockroaches can spread diseases such as salmonella, dysentery, gastroenteritis, etc. They are nocturnal, only emerging to forage for food in the cover of darkness. You may have a serious cockroach overpopulation if you see a cockroach during the day.
Spiders are common in homes because they are drawn to small, warm spaces like wall cracks, corners, air vents and the eaves of houses. When temperature drops during autumn, spiders become more active because they come out of their hiding places to look for a mate. Towards the end of autumn, many spiders die while some hibernate until the following spring.
Aside from spider webs, spider egg-filled sacs attached indoors are another sign that more spiders are coming. Most spider infestations are more annoying than harmful. They can only turn serious if an occupant in the structure has a fear of spiders or it involves one of the most venomous spiders found in Australia.

These small, wingless insects have a slender, tear-drop body and are typically silver or gray in colour. They have long antennae and three tail-like appendages at the end of their body. Silverfish are commonly found in dark, moist places like bathrooms, kitchens and basements. They are active at night and are quite agile, making them hard to catch.
Silverfish feed on various materials found in homes, especially starchy materials like paper, glue and clothing made of natural fibres like linen and cotton. They also eat flour, oats and cereals. If you suspect a silver infestation in your home, act quickly. Silverfish can cause damage to your property and belongings.
The word “rodent” generally refers to three types that can occur in your home: Roof Rat (Black Rat), Sewer Rat (Brown Rat) and Common House. They can cause significant damage to properties and can make them vulnerable to fires because of their habit of gnawing on anything, including electrical wirings.
Rats can also spread diseases because they live in unsanitary and unhygienic places. They can spread these diseases via contact with their urine and droppings.
Binna Burra has an abundance of plants and trees as it is located on hinterlands. This makes the locality always at risk from termite attacks. This is particularly true to structures that are located near well-established gum trees.

High – Very High Risk
According to the Interim Termite Hazard Map by CSIRO, the Scenic Rim area, where Binna Burra is located, is in the high-risk category for termite infestation.
Because Binna Burra is close to the sea, the area is a good target by drywood termites, which need high moisture content in the timber they attack.
Throughout Queensland, the most commonly found termites are Subterranean termites and Drywood termites.
The West Indian drywood termite, is the world’s most destructive drywood termite. It is the culprit to massive economic damage to timber houses in Queensland, including properties in Binna Burra.
