Springbrook National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
90 minutes from Brisbane and only 45 minutes from the Gold coast Springbrook National Park is a treasure trove of natural wonders on the doorstep of Queensland most populated region.

The park is made up of three sections the main section of Springbrook 2720 ha features huge waterfalls, rugged gorges, ancients forests and protects the headwaters of the rivers that flow down through to the Gold Coast. Facilities here include picnic areas at Goomoolahra, Gwongorella, and Tallanbana. The area is riddled with well signed walking tracks and other amenities for the casual visitor including barbecues.

Mount Cougal section to the south of Springbrook features twin peaks originally called Ningeroongun and Barrajanda. The only walking tracks available here are at the Cougal Cascades the headwaters of the Currumbin Creek. Surrounded by tropical rainforest the walk passes many rock pools cascading waterfalls with mountain views. This area of the park is thick bush and no camping areas are maintained here.

The Natural Bridge section is at the headwaters to the Nerang River. The name Natural Bridge comes from a waterfall at Cave Creek where the water disappears down a huge hole in the ground to emerge from a cavern and under a naturally formed rock bridge. Dense rainforest surrounds you and to the east are the sandstone cliffs of the Springbrook plateau. A special feature of the cavern where the water disappears is the large glow worm colony that live inside it, please refrain from shining lights on the worms as this affects their living cycle.

Camping is not permitted in this park. All the parks feature fabulous look outs of the surrounding areas and make for some great bushwalking. The rich volcanic soils provide for a prolific rainforest and hence many native species of birds and animals.
