Goomoolahra Falls
The plateau is highly visible on the western horizon from the Gold Coast coastal strip. Springbrook Plateau is in the water catchment area for Tallebudgera Creek and the larger Nerang River dammed by the Hinze Dam, a significant part of the region’s water supply infrastructure.

Another major tourist attraction on the mountain is the English Gardens known for its tulips and other English bulbs that flower in Spring.

Natural Bridge, Springbrook National Park is a most unusual geological feature created over millions of years by water tumbling through the roof of a basalt cave.

Natural Bridge is home to an amazing colony of glow-worms, whose lights can be seen only after sunset.

Lookouts and lush rainforest also grace this part of the Gondwna Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area, making it one of the most popular parks in Australia. Take the short circuit walk to the natural arch over Cave Creek, and view the unique waterfall and cave.

Enjoy a picnic and relax in cool rainforest. Join a nocturnal tour to see delicate glow-worms.

(Remember a torch for the walk, but turn it off once in the cave). On summer nights, see luminous fungi and fireflies. During the day, hear the calls of paradise riflebirds, green catbirds and wompoo fruit-doves.

Springbrook, dominating the skyline west of Broadbeach, is a wonderful retreat with a choice of excellent dining at small cafes and affordable accommodation.

Springbrook is a suburb, mountain and plateau in the Gold Coast hinterland of South East Queensland. The highest point, known as Springbrook Mountain is 900 metres (3,000 ft) high.

Road access to this eastern Scenic Rim mountain is via Mudgeeraba. To the south of Springbrook is the Tweed Range, west is the Numinbah Valley and the Lamington Plateau. Both the Nimmel Range and Tambourine Mountain are to the north.

Springbrook was the site for a trial that involved 200 distributed, wireless sensors that can monitor natural conditions such as humidity, temperature, light, rainfall, fog, water quality and sound. The cutting edge technology was developed by the CSIRO to assist research into the restoration of natural vegetation.

Springbrook Plateau is the remains of the Tweed Volcano—now known as Mount Warning. The plateau is an undulating elevated patch that extends north from the southern, forested heights, close to Mount Cougal, just to the east. These subtropical rainforests are part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia and contain the rare Antarctic beech trees.

Notable lookouts on the plateau include Best of All Lookout, overlooking the Tweed Valley directly south of Springbrook, as well as Canyon, Goomoolahra and Purlingbrook lookouts.

Nestled between Lamington National Park and the coastline, Springbrook National Park is renowned for its waterfalls and ancient Antarctic Beech trees. Be sure to visit Purlingbrook Falls, Canyon Lookout and take a lunch break at Goomoolahra Falls picnic ground at the southern end of Springbrook Road. There are plenty of walking trails to take it all in.

South of Springbrook, steep roadways through the Numbinbah Valley offer one of the most picturesque drives on the Gold Coast.
