Flames have caused extensive damage to the historic Binna Burra Lodge, as fire crews struggle in rugged terrain and windy conditions to battle an out-of-control bushfire in the Gold Coast hinterland.

Key points:

Fire has destroyed the historic Binna Burra Lodge in the Gold Coast Hinterland
The accommodation site, with views of Lamington National Park, celebrated its 85th birthday last year
It is part of an Australian World Heritage-listed rainforest reserve
Aerial footage of the heritage-listed accommodation at Beechmont showed both its wooden cabins and its new Sky Lodge apartments had been affected.

Queensland Fire and Rescue Service Assistant Commissioner Kevin Walsh said access had hindered the ability of fire crews to save the site.

"The main problem with the lodge is that there was only one road in and one road out," he said.
