Springbrook National Park has breathtaking lookouts, magnificent waterfalls, dense rainforest and ancient Antarctic beech trees. The park is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage area.
Start the Twin Falls circuit at the Tallanbana picnic area or at the Canyon lookout. Pass behind two waterfalls, through rock clefts and among palms and tree ferns. Signs along the way guide you through the different forest types - take caution near cliff edges and slippery rocks near the falls.
Keep an eye out for the smooth, pink bark of brush box trees that line the track. Similar brush box in other parts of the world heritage area has been radio-carbon dated at 1500 years, making these trees the oldest ever carbon-dated on Australia's mainland!
Remember to allow enough time to take in the mountain views and get your fill of photos.
