I hike regularly here-about three times per month. The terrain is moderately challenging and in some areas, (Warrie Circuit for example) leeches are a real problem. Cafes close early so set off early and enjoy coffee and cake as your reward.

We accidentally did the track twice as we missed the track for the pools! Luckily it wasn't too far to get there again. The swimming was lovely. You can jump off the small waterfall safely. There is an eel in the lower pool but even though I may have frightened it, it just swam away. I also came across a... More

Great walks and fab views but 12 camping spots in the whole of the national park? You got to be joking me!

This review is mostly about the twin falls circuit starting at the Tallanbana Picnic Area. Definitely worth a visit and hike if you are fine with steps. It's a lot of steps and switchbacks and the path is rather confusing because of the vandalism on the signs with the paths scratched out. But if you have time to spare, all... More

As a local of the Gold Coast I love being able to drive 40 minutes to beautiful Springbrook. There are well situated picnic areas with toilet facilities and many great walks for all fitness levels. If you're ok with steps (around 500 of them) then I thoroughly recommend the Purling Brook Falls Circuit. Make sure you do it in a... More

We drove here to escape the heat and it was well worth it. Type 'Tallanbana Picnic Area' into Google maps to get to the entrance of the walk. Short 15-20 minute moderate decent from the picnic ground to the waterfall. Tip-use the picnic area toilets before the walk. Due to vandalism, signs are illegible. Directions: 1. Head down path from... More

One of the best national parks I've ever been! The lookouts are accesible by car, and you only have to walk a little bit. The walking trails are in the rainforest, you can see a lot of animals, birds.. There are a lot of cafes and restaurants, toilets, picnic areas, it's really easy to drive around the place. Really beautiful... More

The glow worm caves are fantastic (and free) - please help them stay there by following the rules re: torches and flash photography. There's a great place to swim just a few minutes down the road from the caves (starts with a B... anyway it's easy to spot from the road.) Plenty of lovely walks around here - I recommend... More

Lots of nice walks and waterfalls the "best look out" isn't the best, its just a crowded advrage photo spot, but check out goomoolahra falls by twin falls, it has a great look out from the top of a 109 metre waterfall
