Destination & Location
Experience the untouched natural beauty of the Beechmont Plateau.
Beechmont Estate sits on the edge of Lamington National Park, home to the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. It’s a spectacular place to visit, with ancient trees, lush rainforest, picturesque views and extensive walking tracks, not to mention its natural beauty and ecological importance.
Lamington National Park is nearly 1,000 metres above sea level and an entirely different ecosystem and climate to Brisbane and the Gold Coast with temperatures 5-8 degrees cooler.
You can spend days exploring this magical part of the world, taking short walks or long treks deep into the forest, exploring steams, lookouts, gorges, and cliffs.
The area is known as Woonoongoora to its earliest inhabitants — the Yugambeh Aboriginal kinship group — and the mountains are sacred and spiritual places.
Lamington National Park has a rich volcanic history which contributes to the highly fertile nature of the soil on the plateau.
The park is also an important refuge for many animals and home to rare songbirds. Many of the plants and animals in the park are threatened species relying on the park for protection.
Lamington National Park
Surrounded by pristine national park, Beechmont Estate is located just 90 minutes from the Brisbane CBD and 45 minutes from the Gold Coast. The property is situated in the Binna Burra section of the Lamington National Park on the Beechmont Plateau. Featuring lush rainforests, ancient trees and extensive walking tracks, this Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area is a must while you’re in the Scenic Rim.
Beechmont is located on the most northern spur of the McPherson Range, 26km inland from Burleigh Heads. The area was settled in 1886 with the Beechmont State School opening in August 1904 with the commencement of dairying. The now lush country roads were built in 1923, and the township expanded with the boom in dairying after World War II. Today Beechmont is home to artisans, cattle and horse farmers, and fresh food producers, including our neighbour’s avocado farm.
