Things to do in Springbrook

Springbrook National Park

Springbrook National Park, located within the Gold Coast Hinterland, offers many breathtaking lookouts, magnificent waterfalls and ancient rainforests. Visitors to the region can view the picturesque landscapes and walks among the subtropical and temperate rainforest of the National Park.

For our adventurous travelers and nature lovers, there is a small circuit to complete that will take you to wander through the Warrie Circuit, taking you to the ridges down from into the canyon.

The region plays host to Australia’s best-known glow-worms viewing site. During your visit here, bush walks at night through the rain forest to observe these rare and fascinating creatures at the Natural Arch Bridge and experience the illusion of nature’s own planetarium.

Keep a lookout for some of the 100 species of birds and frogs that call Springbrook National Park home, from the Wompoo Fruit doves and paradise rifle birds to threatened species like the cascade tree frog.

Springbrook National Park is the perfect, natural accompaniment to the fun and buzz of the Gold Coast, so let’s take a cheeky look into what makes the park so magical, and what makes the Gold Coast such an exciting place to visit!

The Natural Arch Bridge

The Natural Arch Bridge is the pièce de résistance of the Springbrook National Park, a stunning testament to nature’s ability to delight and inspire with its wonder. This sublime natural arch is an incredible rock formation, formed by the raging waterfall atop the basalt cave.

People go to the Gold Coast for many reasons: to play, to party, to soak up some sun, but a visit to the Natural Arch Bridge should never be overlooked, especially at night…

The glowworms

It was as if the stunning circuits and bridge weren’t enough to tantalise nature lovers into venturing to Springbrook, but the arch plays host to one of Australia’s unique natural phenomena once the sun goes down.

The Natural Arch Bridge is home to a spectacular nighttime sight: its very own glowworm population. Whilst the bridge and national park are just as stunning at day, a nighttime tour to gaze upon this startling, surreal marvel has to be undertaken to be believed!

And whilst you’re on the Goldy…

So, you’ve got your much-needed nature time out of the way, and now it’s time to take in some of the vibes of the shimmering Gold Coast. This seaside city is home to plenty of excitement, whether it’s heading out to some trendy nightclubs or enjoying some water sports at one of Goldy’s world class beaches.

Speaking of beaches, you’ll find yourself really spoiled for choice, so our picks of the absolute wealth of stunning shorelines include Tallebudgera Creek, Main Beach, Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach – or you could just check them all out – each one is pretty amazing and great for a classic Aussie beach day…

It’s where a sunlit city meets lush nature

The Gold Coast is so much more than its flashy skyline overlooking stunning beaches: Springbrook National Park is one of Australia’s most fascinating; but the beaches are pretty good, too!
