Our guide was John and he was extremely informative and helpful during the tour. The group that we travelled with was mostly in their teens or in their twenties. This meant that the walks went pretty fast as we were all pretty fit. This was nice.
Some people were also crazy enough to go for a dip/swim at the twin falls in freezing cold water (in winter!) so that was quite interesting.
The glow worm grotto was informative and interesting, but you can't actually see the glow worms, just the light that they emit. The souvenir shop there was also nice. If you like something from there, go ahead and get it! They are very reasonably priced!
I had initially considered travelling on our own, but I am extremely glad that we went with the tour instead. It was worth it :)
The tour guide was awesome! I only wish we could have gone to the big cave at night to see it full of glow worms, but the small cave at least allowed us to see them up close.
Really nice. Informative and beautiful scenery. Saw kangaroos and fed beautiful birds.
This was a great way to see Queensland. Springbrook National Park Is beautiful and the bush walks were great. We saw rainforest and waterfalls as well as fantastic views. We also had a fantastic guide who was very knowledgable about the area. The only thing that let this trip down was the very long journey from Brisbane along the Gold Coast to pick up others and the glow worms were a let down. However, the parrot feeding more than made up for this!
Generally this is a good trekking trip to me. However, it may be too demanding for ppl who are more seniors which happened to my tour group. Tour guide should try pace in accordance to the tour grp members. In addition, an itinerary or map showing all the visiting places will be much appreciated which is absent during this tour.
The pace of the bush walk is quite rush and can be slowed down so that we can enjoy the fantastic view
The trip was amazing, we saw fabulous sights and views. But lunch was a bit basic, for the money we paid expected more the a cheese sandwich! Would recommend for the scenery and walk alone . Maybe not the best value for money compared to other trips we have been on this holiday
My husband and I were very well satisfied with the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and nice and made the tour exciting.
Excellent day trip. Our guide was very informative and environment-friendly. The walk through the rainforest was a bit tiring but the scenery was spectacular. Although we were initially disappointed that we were not picked up from our hotel, it turned out to be an enjoyable day.
Our guide was very good - well behaved, informative, professional.
Vehicle could have been better.
Excellent tour and the tour guide, Ian , was not only knowledgeable but could be amusing as well. Good tour for those who love nature but definitely not for those who suffer from arthritis, muscular conditions and the non-fit as there is a lot of walking to do!
Nice walk and scenery! Good energetic guide, although not as knowledgeable as I may have liked about the flora and fauna of the area.
If you are staying in Brisbane city this tour is a must. We got picked up nice and early from one of the pick up points. The tour that we went on was stunning. The picture that is showing is one of the many waterfalls that you actually visit. All are well worth seeing (if you like waterfalls). Our tour guide (meg) was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The lunch which you get is tasty and well deserved after all of the walking.
I would recommend this to anyone who goes to Brisbane (particularly as the city doesn't have much else to offer) it is well organised and interesting, with some brilliant photo ops if you are photographer. If you like wildlife then this is def for you too.
They lost a star because by the time we had lunch I was ravenous. They don't pick up from your actual accommodation which is definitely possible.
Overall the trip was fantastic Highly recommended.!!
Loved the tour, Springbrook was phenomenal! Enjoyed the fresh bakery sandwiches. Maybe some more snack food in the morning? My only complaint (other than the tour being postponed to Friday) was that some of the ladies were quite unfit and slow, and we were not able to complete the whole hike due to time constraints. Other, than that, the day was lovely!
We had a great day at Springbrook NP, the scenery was wonderful even though it was raining (best time to see the rain forest). Our guide was very friendly and informative. Hand feeding the Crimson Rosellas was a real highlight for us and the home made fudge from the fudge shop was delicious. Great value tour.
Une magnifique journée dans la nature. La navette était à l'heure et notre guide était super sympathique. Ses commentaires sur les sites étaient très intéressants. Nous avons appris beaucoup de choses. C'est une excursion à conseiller! De plus, le repas de midi était simple et délicieux. Quoi de mieux que de manger des chose naturelles dans la nature!! La visite aux vers luisants était impressionnante et agréable. Bravo à toute l'équipe pour cette excursion que nous n'oublierons pas!
It was a good walk in the rainforest/jungle, and our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about animals, plants, and geology. We had a morning tea under the waterfall, and had light lunch with burgers, juice, and fruit. All prepared by our guide. The lunch was simple but sufficient, and everyone was very full and satisfied after the long walk. I would recommend this tour to those never or hardly in a jungle. The scenery in Springbrook National Park is very similar to what I have in my country, that is in sub-tropic as Queensland.
The trip was great and the Bushwacker tour guide is good and very knowledgeable. Going through the forest is a bit boring until we reach the waterfall and we enjoy walking pass the waterfall. It's a great experience.
