A collaborative project between the Royal Geographical Society of Queensland and Binna Burra Lodge. With the support of the University of Queensland, School of Earth and Environmental Sciences. View the 2022 Binna Burra Trails Mapping Project report.
Initially established in 1885 as the Geographical Society of Australasia (Queensland Branch), the Royal Geographical Society of Queensland (RGSQ) has a historical link to the Binna Burra Cultural Landscape, not only through the contributions of Robert Collins (1843-1913) and Romeo Lahey (1887-1968), but of many others over the generations who have an interest in places, geography and the environment. In 2022 Binna Burra was pleased to strengthen its relationship with RGSQ for this collaborative mapping project. It's another important step in our recovery from the 2019 bushfire devastation. The research and documenting of the conditions of the walking trails provides a solid basis planning for the future of all the walking trails on the Binna Burra Cultural Landscape. Especially since the bushfires at Binna Burra three years ago, we often talk about our PALs (Partners. Alliances. Linkages.). RGSQ and the University of Queensland are long term inter-generational PALs of Binna Burra and we are very appreciative of their support for this walking trail mapping project.
