An easy one-kilometre walk through lush subtropical rainforests leads to what is one of Springbrook’s most popular spots, Natural Bridge. Nature does it again, presenting a spectacular scene of an expansive cave with a waterfall carving an opening in the roof, making it one of the hinterland's most photographed sights. Along the route you're sure to spot numerous creatures who call Springbrook home, from countless colourful birds to rarer species such as the tree frogs and koalas. Millions of glow worms also dwell within the cave itself, which glitter in the darkness. December through March is prime time to see glow worms and you’re best off joining a tour. Night time visitor remember to take a torch and wear warm clothing, as it can get very cold in the forest at night.
