Brisbane experiences

Springbrook National Park

Springbrook is one of South East Queensland's best-kept secrets. Tucked away on a plateau in the Gold Coast hinterland, this unique and charismatic town is surrounded on all sides by an ancient subtropical oasis. Springbrook is the base from which to explore some of the most beautiful natural scenery found anywhere in Australia.

Springbrook National Park

Less than 100km south of Brisbane, the Springbrook National Park is one of the state's treasures. Rain has returned to this part of the country after years of drought, and the park's spectacular waterfalls are gushing once more. The park offers a range of fantastic walking trails to suit all levels of fitness and ability – some are even wheelchair accessible. Whichever trail you choose, stunning mountain views await the bushwalker at every turn.

Springbrook National Park forms part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia, listed as a World Heritage area in 1986. Covering rainforests in Queensland and across the border in New South Wales, this protected area is home to an incredibly diverse range of native fauna. More frog, snake, bird and marsupial species are found here than anywhere else in the country, as well as some of Australia's oldest trees. A visit to the Springbrook National Park truly is a glimpse into the prehistoric soul of this land.
