"Alcheringa" is an exceptional holiday house within Lamington National Park, adjacent to Binna Burra Lodge. Most rooms and the spectacular valley deck overlook the Coomera and Numinbah Valleys with the volcanic plug of Egg Rock jutting from the valley. If you can drag yourself away from the ever-changing view the 145km of walking tracks in Lamington offer a wealth of scenic beauty - dozens of waterfalls, subtropical rainforest, ancient Antarctic beech trees, open eucalypt forest, heath country with wildflowers in Spring, views from mountain lookouts, wind eroded caves, 180 species of birds, shy bush animals. Lamington National Park is part of the Gondwana Rainforest World Heritage Area. The slopes of Lamington rise up to the rim of the Mt. Warning caldera - recently recognized as one of 15 important Australian landscapes to be promoted by Tourism Australia.
You will need at least a week to do justice to the walks in Lamington - 2 weeks would allow time to visit other nearby mountain resorts such as Springbrook or Tamborine and, for a complete change of scene, the Gold Coast. (Warning! The house and the National Park are addictive - after 2 weeks you may not want to leave.)
You will need to allow time for relaxation in the house - there are plenty of choices. Meals can be enjoyed on the valley deck, the forest deck or in the dining room (you can host a sit down meal for 24 if you wish). The large lounge area has an open fire place, a huge library of books, CD's and DVD's and a 70cm digital TV - plus, of course the view. After a walk you can soak your tired muscles in the glass enclosed upper bathroom. With the use of sliding doors the decks, dining and lounge areas can be opened up to a 140sq m area - great for family reunions, small weddings, parties, anything!
With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms the house provides luxurious accommodation for 2 or up to 8 close friends or family. Sleeping arrangements include one king, two queens and a split king (can be two singles). A private heated outdoor spa provides perfect relaxation after a walk.
