Feel the glow

Escape to Springbrook National Park where famous glow-worms at Natural Bridge attract visitors from around the world, keen for a nocturnal glimpse of the tiny, yet brilliant blue-green lights decorating rocky overhangs. Join professional guides on a night tour to learn more about these fascinating creatures. During the day, take a refreshing walk and enjoy breath-taking views over the Gold Coast, marvel at the cascading creeks and tumbling waterfalls of Purling Brook and Twin Falls at Springbrook Plateau, while surrounded by ancient rainforests and abundant birdlife. Listen for the impressive mimicking sounds of the Albert’s lyrebird—an elusive natural icon in this beautiful World Heritage-listed environment.
