What You Can Expect

Springbrook and Tamborine Rainforest Tour Including Natural Bridge and Glow Worm Cave

Springbrook and Tamborine Rainforest Tour including Natural Bridge and Glow Worm

Your day starts with morning pickup at Brisbane Transit Centre and a scenic drive through Numinbah Valley with views of Mt Tamborine. Approximately 62 miles (100 km) south of Brisbane, you reach Springbrook National Park, which lies within the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage area.

Follow your guide on a hike that takes you into the rainforest and past waterfalls in this lush landscape. Hear about the region’s diverse wildlife, which includes more than 1,700 species of flowering plants and 500 vertebrate animals. Keep an eye out for pademelons (similar to wallabies), goannas, Australian water dragons and Australian brush-turkeys.

Near the arched rock of Natural Bridge, you can see Cave Creek waterfall as it plunges into a pool below as well as a cave with glow worms, which resemble tiny stars on the cave walls. Be on the lookout for Australian wildlife such as rosellas, king parrots, bowerbirds and kangaroos.

In the afternoon, take a guided tour of the Tamorine Mountain Glow Worm Caves at Cedar Creek, for your final rainforest walk of the day. See an audio-visual display on glow worms, whose brilliant blue-green lights are actually emitted by the tiny larvae of a fungus fly. Step inside the second cave filled with thousands of glowing worms!

Stroll along the Curtis Falls track, a moderately challenging 1-mile (1.6-km) trail that includes 101 steps. Descend beneath towering gum trees to the viewing platform over Curtis Creek, then continue down to a second platform overlooking a waterfall that cascades into a large rock pool.

After a 50-minute drive back to Brisbane, you're dropped off at your original departure point.

Great experience in the Gold Coast Hinterland ! Our guide was very interesting and everyone was so friendly - amazing atmosphere ! We went to Springbrook and Mount Tamborine, saw the Natural Bridge, the Scenic Rim, the Glow Worm Cave and had a bit of time to shop at Gallery Walk. We even heard a green catbird and saw a snake in the wild. I also liked that our guide told us a lot about the different species of rainforest trees !

This tour was fun and informative and we saw some lovely places that you would not be aware of without doing a tour like this. Brian, our guide and driver, was really pleasant and helpful, even managing to fit in a couple of extras that were not really on the tour as our busload of people was so good at keeping to the times! Natural bridge is beautiful, and the glow worm cave was very interesting. Lunch was nice. We would recommend this tour highly.

We had a wonderful trip, our guide, Bryan sp, was very knowledgeable and outgoing. The van was a little tight/uncomfortable for 12. We saw water dragons, python, birds heard them, more than saw them and heard kookaburra at the Tamborin Rainforest we heard cicadas like creatures - very loud the waterfalls and natural bridge were spectacular also enjoyed hearing about the rainforest and glow worms traveled by van about an hour.5 on highway and back roads lunch was at The Cedar Creek Estate Vineyard and Winery - very tasty we travelled five - 10 minutes to an area called Gallery Walk - shops, food, micro-brewery, etc. We split an ice cream at Lick's - rum raisin - very sweet but delicious! walked around a bit, then I got a mocha coffee - yum! Headed back to the city. Definitely worth the value!
