This beautiful photo gallery has been taken in the unspoilt world-heritage listed Springbrook National Park, which can be found in the hinterland on the south side of the Gold Coast, around 100km south of Brisbane and 30 – 45 minutes from central Surfers Paradise. It comprises of forests, streams, gorges, hiking trails, lookouts and waterfalls with features that show what the natural rain-forest might have been like a long time ago.
Many of the plants and flowers are found exclusively in Australian rainforest regions, though as we were driving through, we noticed an abundance of hydrangea lining the roadways that had been planted in residents private gardens, and affectionately dubbed it “hydrangea heaven”.
Bush-walking here is a treat through open eucalyptus forests with plenty of opportunity to spot native wildlife, birds, possums and other animals … and the views from the many viewing lookouts are breathtaking.
Popular with both tourists and locals, it’s a great place for a day trip or a long stay. Highly recommended.
The super high quality photographs on this page include digitally enhanced and natural rain forest scenes, views to the Queensland N.S.W. border, Surfers Paradise and the Gold Coast, Coolangatta, Mount Cougal, Murwillumbah, Byron Bay and Mount Warning, the boardwalks and tracks, native plants, trees and flora, moss, fungi, old historic wagon and school, waterfall, rocks, walk bridges, an old painted tourist van, sign posts, the storyboard of the reserves with some memorabilia, tourists, people walking on tracks in the bush, an incredibly large Antarctic Beech tree, Canyon lookout, great views from The Best Lookout and more … Enjoy!
