Hike to Natural Bridge, Springbrook National Park

These magnificent Natural Bridges are located in the western part of Springbrook National Park, part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area.

The park's Natural Bridge section features striking rock formations, formed by the shape of the waterfall over the basalt cave.  

Getting here is easy. It is easily accessible from the Nerang-Murwillumbah Road car park. Follow the one-kilometer path (walk in a clockwise direction) and slide through the Gondwana rainforest (are living relics of the Jurassic Age, 180 million years ago.)  to the Natural Bridge rock arch.  Part of Cave Creek in the Natural Bridge section is a Restricted Access Area. Swimming in the creek, including inside the cave, and entrance to the creek bank is prohibited. 

During the day spot paradise riflebirds, green catbirds, worm poo fruit-doves and also rare and threatened species like the cascade tree frog, tusked frog, sooty owl, and koala. 

There are expensive tour groups you can join to see the glow worms, but there is no reason to pay. Just go here before sundown and not only can you enjoy the waterfall, but you can see the glowing worms for free!
