Purling Brook Falls, Springbrook Reviews

  • We really enjoyed to go visit the fall walking from the top to the bottom, discovering an amazing spectacle that the nature was giving us. The paths are all well indicated and clear and the walk itself was not too hard. The path to the pool was also very nice and once arrived at destination we found ourselves in this peaceful pool in the middle of the rainforest. I suggest this location to all nature lovers for an incredible walk in the forest.

  • Great 2hr round trip walk (even with ample picture taking). Second half of circuit is closed currently so you need to go in and out the same way. Switchbacks uphill on way back but not too bad.

  • Such a beautiful place. The waterfalls are a short walk from the parking. However, walking down all the way to the bottom requires about 1h and another 1h to make it back. It's not a difficult circuit, but the track can be slippery, especially if rain occurred recently. A must visit if one is on the Gold Coast.

  • Viewing points are really great. Awesome views. Good place to get into water as well. But need to have energy to walk up after getting into water.

  • Amazing lookout. We didn't have time to walk the loop but it would be awesome to have a view of the waterfall from the bottom. If you dont want to do 4km loop walk, its just 300m walk to the waterfall lookout. Not much water flow from the cliff when we went there but still another awesome place to check it out!
