Binna Burra to Ratatat or alternative? Ovenight

Postby spittle » Tue 30 Apr, 2019 4:20 pm


I'm hoping someone can offer some suggestions and critique on my itinerary.

I'm planning an overnight hike in Lamington National Park this coming weekend with about 13kg backpack. The weather is currently forecast for heavy rain on Day 1. I don't mind the rain and will be equipped appropriately.

I'm thinking:

- Park at Binna Burra
- Hike to Mt Bithongabel (then assess how tired I am and time)
- Potentially do either Toolona Creek or Albert Creek circuit and camp at Bithongabel or Echo Point, or
- or skip the creek circuits on day one and walk to Rat-a-tat or similar and Camp.
- Then on day two - do one of the creek circuits and back to Binna Burra, or just head straight back.

Can anyone help me to put some times against the different sections? Perhaps if I was walking at the pace suggested in "Take a Walk". That will help me to estimate the time I need to start and book an appropriate campsite.
Any suggestions on whether the campsites I've mentioned are the good options in the area?
I'm assuming the leeches will be out in force - hopefully Deet does the trick along with gaiters.
