About Natural Bridge , Springbrook
The Natural Bridge was a surprising characteristic of Springbrook National Park in which a hole is created through a Cave Creek actually split into two and emerged from the dark cave on its opening. The amalgamation of the hole and cave opening was what forms the bridge feature. A trustworthy flowing waterfall with a natural arch or bridge into the cave can be seen. One can find it to be one of the most memorable and unique waterfall attractions in Australia or even in the world, for that matter.

Natural Bridge , Springbrook Reviews
Such an amazing place with amazing views all the way towards the waterfall. Very easy and fun walk to the waterfall. You must come here around sunset and don’t miss the glow warms inside the cave at the bottom of the waterfall. The glow warms are every where when you walk up to the car park again but they shine in the cave like stars. I suggest bringing a light to use it on your way back.
The cave was a bit of a walk down from the car park in the dark with IPhone torches but well worth the effort. The walk started with everything pitch black except for our torches but soon tiny dots of pale blue light began to sprinkle the sides of the path. Glow worms were nesting in little indentations on the earth walls. Arriving at the cave was a magical experience, the top and sides of the cave were lit up like it was lit up with tiny stars. The main drawback was the massive numbers of people. We arrive at around 8pm and it was really full. Luckily, Most visitors were respectful and obeyed the notices but there were some clearly bored kids who were twirling bright torchlight and destroying the view and a disgustingly rude man who was smoking and climbed over the viewing platform. Unfortunately, there wasn't much moonlight but it would ha e been even more fantastic if there was moonlight steaming down the waterfall which falls through the hole on top of the cave. Highly recommended!
Nature at its finest. Absolutely spectacular gorgeous... Words can't describe this place. Easy short hiking loop (not wheelchair accessible). Beautiful rainforest. Come after dark to see fireflies and glow worms. Be aware there's no swimming permitted in the creek or any of the water holes. Public toilets and information boards at the carpark.
Beautiful, just absolutely beautiful. Easy access, plenty of walking space and a great day out for the family. Try to make it an all day outing or go late afternoon so you do t miss the glow worms.
Really great place by day to see the waterfall, and an awesome place by night to see the glow worms in the cave. At night, the forest itself becomes enchanted with lights from glow worms and glowing mushrooms seen along the walking track. A truly unique experience.
