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

  • The glow worms are very dim and difficult to see. This is because too many people in the past have visited and damaged the environment by having fires in the cave and shining bright torches at them and flashlight photography. From time to time the park was closed to attempt to restore the original brilliance of the wonder but too much damage may have already been done. That said, this is still a nice bush walk on a sealed track with a modest amount of stairs and some good photo opportunities. There is a short track and a longer track to the cave, both joining to create a complete circuit. Though not in the park itself, but a short distance along the main road to the North, there is a cafe.

  • It’s a must do when you’re visiting the Gold Coast. Well maintained track. Low-medium fitness needed. I’d recommend doing the loop in the clockwise direction to avoid steep ascent. Swimming prohibited to preserve glow worms. Limited parking available. Limited mobile reception.

  • Stunning!! From the gentle walk (do this is a clockwise direction) down to the cave to the picturesque Cave Creek which winds its way through the rainforest, you’ll be mesmerized! Lots of stunning spots to take amazing photos, so make sure you have plenty of charge on the camera! The sound of the waterfall is amazing and even during the day you’ll be lucky enough to see the small bats in the cave!

  • The walk was quite short and recently tarred, very recently so everyone was sticking to the trail! No doubt only affects those on this day though. A unique location with a waterfall falling into a cave. Bats flying about and glow worms supposedly in the cave too although not visible on our visit. Apparently better to visit for glow worms in the night. No swimming allowed and the trail past the cave is currently closed so a long way to come to see just the waterfall but the rainforest scenery is excellent similar to other sites in Springbrook national park.

  • A great drive to reach the caves, with beautiful views en-route, and then a lovely (short) walk around the rainforest and river/waterfall. The glowworms only show at dusk/nighttime, so don't be disappointed if you go during the day - there are still protected bats to see near the waterfall, and the water itself is fantastic.
