Springbrook National Park

Springbrook National Park is a beautiful natural green paradise with an amazing Natural Bridge rock formation created by the sheer force of the waterfall over the erosive basalt cave.

There is a short one and half kilometre subtropical circuit walk to the rock arch from the easily accessible Nerang-Murwillumbah Road car park.

The forest in these parts is ancient Gondwana rainforest, you are likely to see a multitude of birds and animal life if you are quiet; keep on the lookout for paradise riflebirds, green catbirds, wompoo fruit-doves as well as rare and threatened species such as koalas, sooty owls, tusked frog and tree frogs.

For something extra special, become nocturnal as you take a guided night tour to spot the resident colony of glow-worms and microbats both of which are protected species. If you take a summer night tour you will also see fireflies and luminous fungi.

Springbrook National Park’s John Stacey suspension Bridge is now open and transcends across little Nerang creek gorge, this is part of the ever popular Purling Brook Falls walking track. Take a walk to the bridge, it’s a 90 minute round trip with stunning and complete views of Purling Brook Waterfall.
