Know More about this tour

Start your day early at your Brisbane meeting point, then travel by minivan about one hour south, passing through the Numinbah Valley to reach Natural Bridge, your first stop in Springbrook National Park.

Take in the naturally formed arch rock and the Cave Creek waterfall that plunges into a pool near Natural Bridge. Keep an eye out for Australian water dragons (a lizard), Australian brush-turkeys, goannas and pademelons (similar to wallabies) in this area.

Next up, follow your guide on a 2.5-mile (4-km) Twin Falls Circuit walk, passing stunning waterfalls and lush stretches of sub-tropical temperate rainforest, venturing a little further than many visitors go to reach spectacular viewpoints.

Enjoy a delicious lunch while overlooking the region’s largest waterfall, Purlingbrook Falls. Then walk through an Antarctic beech forest with 2000-year-old trees, one of the few remaining links to the ancient forests of Gondwana, which grew some 510 to 180 million years ago. From a viewpoint that looks over northern New South Wales, your guide points out sights such as Mt Warning, a remnant of the Tweed Shield volcano.

During your time in Springbrook National Park, you’ll have the chance to take a dip in the fresh cool water of one of the many natural pools. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife sightings, with wallabies and a variety of birds regularly seen, and rare sightings of animals such as platypus, spotted quoll and wombats.

Your informative guide shares commentary about the rainforest, wildlife and plants throughout the park, which shelters more than 500 vertebrate animals and 1,700 species of flowering plants. Your tour ends with return to the original departure point.

Please note: Walks are suitable to people with a moderate level of fitness. Some sections include stairs, uneven ground or creek crossings over wet rocks. It is advised to take a raincoat in all seasons. While every attempt is made to visit everything on the itinerary, inclusions are subject to change without notice.

  • There were not enough takers for this tour the day we had booked. We were offered an alternative one to Moreton Island which was fabulous.

  • Excellent small group tour. Bushwalk was very enjoyable. Jovial and entertaining guide.

  • This was a beautiful trip with a very sweet guide. We had rain and mist the whole time but that made it magical.

  • We really enjoyed our day bush walking - seeing many waterfalls, the natural bridge and many other things. Livio was an excellent guide.

    Lunch was not so great - had we known what was going to be provided we would have brought our own food. Plus the pick up was a unclear.

  • Wonderful full day of bushwalking with knowledgeable guides, this is a well worth tour and seriously is one of the most beautiful sights you will see at Natural Bridge.....a must do at Brisbane

  • This was really excellent tour. Enjoyed every minute. Fabulous walk. Guide was really informative and the day was fun. Picnic was great.

  • Nothing fancy about it, but the tour was amazing! Guide Clayton grew up in the area and was very knowledgeable. They had just had rain the day before, so there were lots of waterfalls.

  • Beautiful trip to the National Park. It did take an hour and half to get to the National Park on the bus. The ride was definitely worth it....the views are wonderful, the hike to the waterfalls is worth the effort. We saw lots of wildlife.....even a 6 foot long python! Out tour guide was quite knowledgeable and enjoyable.

  • The tour description mentioned Glow Worms but they were not part of the tour. The small bus used was old and worn out. The tour guide had lots of knowledge about the park. Lunch was very basic. Overall I would rate this tour as fair.

  • The scenery was wonderful but the trip was too expensive for what was on offer, i.e. unprofessional guide who brought his very young kids on the tour, battered van with no seatbelts, and poor lunch offerings. If it was half the price of what we've paid, it would have been OK. And by the way, they are NO glow worms in the glow worm cave so maybe you want to stop advertising it as such.
