Know More about this tour

After being picked up by minivan at the Brisbane Transit Centre, settle in for a lovely drive through the Numinbah Valley, passing excellent views of Tamborine Mountain on your way to Springbrook National Park.

When you arrive in Springbrook National Park, located about 62 miles (100 km) south of Brisbane, embark on a guided hike to explore the unique landscape, where more than 1,700 species of flowering plants and 500 vertebrate animals can be found in the sheltered gorges of the Springbrook plateau.

The park also features some impressive waterfalls, one of which you can see at Natural Bridge. The arched rock sets a dramatic scene for the Cave Creek waterfall as it plunges into a pool below. During your stroll in the area, be on the lookout for pademelons (similar to wallabies), goannas, Australian water dragons and Australian brush-turkeys. After, enjoy free time for a gallery stroll through one of Queenslands best arts and craft districts. Lunch is provided during the tour.

In the afternoon, take a guided tour of the Tamborine Mountain Glow Worm Caves at Cedar Creek, consisting of two large chambers interlinked by tunnels. See an audio-visual display on glow worms, whose brilliant blue-green lights are actually emitted by the tiny larvae of a fungus fly. Step inside the second cave filled with thousands of glowing worms!
Finish the day with a rainforest walk to Curtis Falls, situated along a 1-mile (1.6-km) moderate path with 101 steps. Amble downhill beneath towering gum trees to the viewing platform over Curtis Creek, then descend gradually into lush rainforest to a second platform overlooking a waterfall that cascades into a large rock pool.
After a 50-minute drive back to Brisbane, you're dropped off at your original departure point.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The rain forest was good, but was disappointed in the glow worm cave it was man-made.

  • Great tour, once we got underway. The meeting point for departure was a bit confusing to locate. The glow worm cave is a must do.

  • Beautiful scenery and interesting animals skinks, lizards, birds and a python!. We really enjoyed the tour and Harrison was an amiable, knowledgeable guide.

  • Beautiful scenic photos, great to experience a rain forest, didn’t see much wildlife but what a guide we had! Harrison is a legend, so enthusiastic and so knowledgable, top bloke!! He definitely made it!

  • This was a great experience. Our guide, Brian , was awesome.

  • The sceneries were awesome!! Loved the glow worm cave: It would be perfect if the coach could speak up or wear microphone, cause it was difficult to listen from the back.

  • This tour is a fairly short tour that first goes to Springbrook to a beautiful natural bridge with an impressive waterfall in the rain forest. There is cave that supposed to have glow worms but you would need to visit after dark. The tour instead take you to an artificial cave where you can see the glow worms. This is a very unique experience. Then the tour goes to Tamborine Rainforest where you can enjoy amazing trees and lots of birds and bird sounds. There are beautiful scenic stops along the way. The tour ends with an hour of free time in a little tourist strip with wine tasting, food options and souvenirs. If you like shopping you will enjoy this too. Overall, this tour was shorter than others and I think it would have been more enjoyable if there was more time for hiking and/or if the skywalk in Tamborine was included for additional wow experience.

  • Nice day, beautiful places, great lunch. Bit of driving involved but worth it.

  • This was a wonderful day trip. The guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. Would definitely recommend this trip to all my friend's and family. Very happy customer.
