Springbrook National Park Discovery Full-Day Bushwalking Tour
Take in the naturally formed arch rock and the Cave Creek waterfall that plunges into a pool near Natural Bridge. Keep an eye out for Australian water dragons (a lizard), Australian brush-turkeys, goannas and pademelons (similar to wallabies) in this area.
Next up, follow your guide on a 2.5-mile (4-km) Twin Falls Circuit walk, passing stunning waterfalls and lush stretches of sub-tropical temperate rainforest, venturing a little further than many visitors go to reach spectacular viewpoints.
Enjoy a delicious lunch while overlooking the region’s largest waterfall, Purlingbrook Falls. Then walk through an Antarctic beech forest with 2000-year-old trees, one of the few remaining links to the ancient forests of Gondwana, which grew some 510 to 180 million years ago. From a viewpoint that looks over northern New South Wales, your guide points out sights such as Mt Warning, a remnant of the Tweed Shield volcano.
During your time in Springbrook National Park, you’ll have the chance to take a dip in the fresh cool water of one of the many natural pools. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife sightings, with wallabies and a variety of birds regularly seen, and rare sightings of animals such as platypus, spotted quoll and wombats.
Your informative guide shares commentary about the rainforest, wildlife and plants throughout the park, which shelters more than 500 vertebrate animals and 1,700 species of flowering plants. Your tour ends with return to the original departure point.

Excellent small group tour. Bushwalk was very enjoyable. Jovial and entertaining guide.
This was a beautiful trip with a very sweet guide. We had rain and mist the whole time but that made it magical.
Wonderful full day of bushwalking with knowledgeable guides, this is a well worth tour and seriously is one of the most beautiful sights you will see at Natural Bridge.....a must do at Brisbane
The tour description mentioned Glow Worms but they were not part of the tour. The small bus used was old and worn out. The tour guide had lots of knowledge about the park. Lunch was very basic. Overall I would rate this tour as fair.
