Dominating the Gold Coast's western skyline, Springbrook's cool forests and mountain streams offer views of impressive landscapes and walks among subtropical and temperate rainforest.
Spectacular waterfalls, cascades and tumbling creeks are dominant features within this lush Rainforest. Springbrook National Park covers 6,725 hectares and is divided in four main eco-quadrants;
Springbrook Plateau and Mount Cougal to the south east, and Natural Bridge and Numinbah to the west.
Be sure to visit Natural Bridge by day to see a unique cave waterfall, or after dark, discover the park's amazing glow-worms. Take a lunch and picnic on the shaded banks of the Nerang River at the well-equipped Forest Park picnic area. Stay a little longer and camp in the Settlement Camping Area on the Springbrook Plateau.
There's wildlife galore with over 100 types of birds, frogs and reptiles plus a plethora of plant and tree species; some over 2,000 years old as evident at The Best of All Lookout.
With pride, we protect and present this heritage - the world's heritage. Help us ensure that while we enjoy this wonderful area, we do not destroy it; please look then leave without a trace.
