* Springbrook * Mount Tamborine * Natural Arch * Glow Worms * Rainforests * Waterfalls
Explore the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage area. This tour takes in both the rainforests of Springbrook and Tamborine National Parks. See two beautiful waterfalls set in a natural sub-tropical rainforest. Walk through the filtered light of the forest surrounded by the towering rainforest trees with their tangle of vines, moss covered trees and that rich ‘earthy” smell of the forest. A chance to spot the forest wildlife including the shy pademelons (rainforest wallabies), brush turkeys, goanna and water dragons. You will marvel at the unique Natural Bridge (Arch) with the waterfall plunging into the cave below.
Mount Tamborine brings a break to explore the Tamborine Village “Gallery Walk” (free time) before visiting a winery and enjoying a restaurant lunch overlooking the vineyards. Afternoon includes a guided tour of the award winning Glow Worm caves at Cedar Creek. A unique experience. We finish the day with a rainforest walk to Curtis Falls. A 50 minute drive will have you back in Brisbane late afternoon.
