Your guide picks you up in Brisbane then drives south through the Numinbah Valley for approximately one hour to arrive at Springbrook National Park.
During your visit to the park, you can take a dip in one of many natural freshwater pools. You might spot Australian water dragons (a lizard), pademelons (similar to wallabies), Australian brush-turkeys, goannas, or even rare sightings of platypus, spotted quoll and wombats.
Your first stop takes you to Natural Bridge — an archway formed by rock — and Cave Creek waterfall. Then walk the 2.5-mile (4-km) Twin Falls Circuit, going a little further than many visitors to reach spectacular viewpoints and stretches of sub–tropical temperate rainforest.
Refuel with a picnic lunch near Purlingbrook Falls, the region’s largest waterfall. Then stroll through an Antarctic beech forest with 2000-year-old trees, a remnant of the ancient forests of Gondwana, which grew some 510 to 180 million years ago.
Your guide shares informative commentary about the forest and wildlife found in Springbrook National Park. More than 500 vertebrate animals and 1,700 species of flowering plants thrive in the area.
The nature walks are suitable for people with a moderate level of fitness. Expect some challenging sections that include uneven ground, stairs, or creek crossings over wet rocks. Raincoats are recommended in all seasons. Inclusions are subject to change without notice depending on the conditions.
