A walk through the rainforest and its huge trees with nested birds will lead you to a cave at Natural Bridge. Inside a stream has broken through the roof and cascades down into the cave forming this waterfall. You can go on an easy walk in the cave, but swimming is prohibited. This hinterland is one of largest Glow Worm colonies, so watch out for the twinkling creatures.

  • Lovely walk with many great views including seeing the natural bridge. The walk is fairly easy and there are various lookout points. Definitely worth visiting!  more »
  • This naturan bridge is a must-see for anyone on a day trip or staying in the Springbrook area. Well maintained pathways and stairs not difficult to walk. The falls that create the bridge are 'hidden' ...  more »

  • Unique . Love that you are in a cave with the sun shining through the onto the waterfall . We got here at 6pm, there's mini little bats that fly though the cave which are cool to watch. Glow worms looked awesome. We just had tourists shining their lights at them with torches which was the only shame.
  • Just before 8pm (February), the glow worms are visible and the tourists haven't arrived for another 15 minutes. Make sure your flashlights are off, phone screens on low and flashes are off. Tourists don't do any of those things so get there a little early. There are bats in the cave but they just fly around you. Also on the way back to the car from the cave, you might see glow worms along the track so keep an eye out. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the cave from the entrance.
  • Been coming here for almost 40 years. Beautiful scenery and waterfall and nice glow worms at night. One of my favourite places on the planet.
  • Very beautiful place for a Sunday drive and a picnic.
  • A Unique natural formation... so close to Gold Coast and Brisbane... Only a short walk from the car park. Definitely worth a visit.
