Your tour begins with complimentary pick-up from your central Gold Coast hotel (Main Beach, Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach) and in just a short drive, the busy city streets give way to the cliffs and pastures of the Numinbah Valley as you travel towards Springbrook National Park.Take a fully guided walk through pristine subtropical rainforest to the Natural Bridge rock arch and waterfall. Inside the cave you’ll see the water cascading through the roof of the basalt cave which has been formed over millions of years – a wonderful photography opportunity. You’ll learn about the rainforest’s unique flora and fauna, and its special significance as World Heritage-listed Gondwana rainforest, during this approximately 45-minute guided circuit walk.Journey to higher elevations within Springbrook National Park to view 4 more stunning waterfalls– Purling Brook Falls, the Twin Falls, and Rainbow Falls from Canyon Lookout.At its highest point, your guide walks you through one of the region’s last remaining pockets of Antarctic Beech rainforest featuring 3000-year old trees, before emerging at Best of All Lookout – a spectacular panorama taking in the Gold Coast, Mt. Warning, and the Green Cauldron of Northern NSW. Of course, you’ll need refreshments during your tour, so you’ll also stop in at a charming hinterland cafe for afternoon tea: freshly baked scones with jam and cream accompanied by a coffee, tea or cold drink. All throughout the tour you’ll be on the lookout for native wildlife – from brightly colored parrots and other rainforest birds, interesting insects, reptiles, and amphibians, and even famous Australian marsupials like koalas, kangaroos, and wallabies which may emerge in the cooler parts of the day on the journey home.This is a truly personalized experience, with no more than 16 people per tour, traveling in luxury Mercedes vehicles and with commentary from a local, experienced guide all the way.
