The Springbrook National Park is a protected national park that is located in the Gold Coast hinterland of Queensland, Australia. The 6197ha park is situated on the McPherson Range, near Springbrook, approximately south of Brisbane. The park is part of the Shield Volcano Group of the UNESCO World Heritagelisted Gondwana Rainforests of Australia.In December 1994, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee officially extended the area now known as the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area over the Scenic Rim (including Main Range, Mount Barney, Lamington and Springbrook National Parks and Goomburra Forest Reserve) and the rainforests of northern New South Wales. In 2007 the areas of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia were added to the Australian National Heritage List. The park is part of the Scenic Rim Important Bird Area, identified as such by BirdLife International because of its importance in the conservation of several species of threatened birds.In 2009 as part of the Q150 celebrations, the Springbrook National Park was announced as one of the Q150 Icons of Queensland for its role as a "Natural attraction".

  • We had a great day exploring Springbrook National Park in our rental car. We saw Purling Brook Falls, the Natural Bridge and went to the Best of All Lookout as well. Well worth the trip - be careful w...  more »
  • What could be better on an early autumn day out. Stubbies in the bag, sandwiches on ice, and views to die for. Brought the dog for a walk, and he had the biggest smile of all of us.  more »
  • To many bush walks and sights to list in one review. Best walk for me has to be the Twins Falls circuit, about 5km's with numerous waterfalls, features and photo ops. I suggest you start the walk at R...  more »

  • An amazing array of varied tracks in world heritage rainforest. Will suit anyone from 0-100+ with well marked paths, often with built steps etc. Just choose a longer trail if you want a bit more serenity, it can be busy, cooler months are ideal. Be careful to research different parts of this park and your route as there are many different access points. You could find enough different trails to walk for months! Enjoy
  • One of my favourite places to visit is the natural bridge in Springbrook National park, it's the first place I take foreign visitors, it's such an amazing natural rock formation, if you are lucky enough to visit during the evening, you may encounter the beautiful glow worms, just be careful not to disturb them as they're very sensitive to environmental changes. But the whole park extends over 60km2 and has so many amazing places to stay and eat.
  • Great tracks & hike, also such peaceful & quite area for a family picnic or even a romantic little surprise. They have toilets & bins also parking spaces, only down side is drivers are so bad on their phones when they should be focusing when coming around those bends. The roads are also quite narrow and tight when going up the mountains that one wrong swerve will have your car rolling down the cliff.
  • I don't only live in this beautiful place but get to enjoy it every single time I go for a wonder. Best lockouts and walks! Best place to take photos!
  • Twin Falls walk is amazing! Much better views than best view lookout even. Purling falls was also very nice but has many many more steps
