One of the most stunning and popular sights of Springbrook National Park is Natural Bridge — a beautiful natural arched cave through whose ceiling a sparkling waterfall tumbles like a cascade of a million droplets of light. It is a magical sight to behold and the Natural Bridge Circuit is a great bushwalk to do with kids to explore the beautiful rainforest setting and visit this stunning natural wonder.

Springbrook National Park is a Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area with spectacular scenery, beautiful waterfalls, breathtaking views and amazing wildlife. Distance: 1km circuit Time: 1 hour Level of difficulty: Class 2. Natural Bridge Circuit is a one-kilometre circuit walking trail through the subtropical rainforest in the beautiful Numinbah Valley.

You will walk through the beautiful forest where you can look out for skinks and lace monitors, beautiful rainforest birds and even pademelons. You can also go inside the cave, where you can even spot glow worms at night! See nprsr. According to the Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing, the Natural Bridge Circuit is rated Class 2, indicating that it is an easy level track which is suitable for all fitness levels.

This is a sealed circuit track that is a relatively easy walk, although there is a long section of steps. Remember to wear hats, sunscreen and insect repellent. Wear good walking shoes for ankle support and to keep off leeches which may be present. Check the weather before you set off, and check the display stand at the entrance to the walking track which has maps and information about the area and its wildlife. You can also read up about the route here before heading out. You should also check Park alerts here before you head off, as some parts of the track may be closed after ificant rainfall for public safety.

Access to the glow-worm cave is usually still available. Heading in a clockwise direction will make for an easier walk along this trail, due to the long section of steps. Follow the sealed track across Cave Creek. Please note that access to the creek is restricted to protect the sensitive ecosystem of this area and to ensure visitor safety.

Swimming is prohibited. At night, the cave is lit up with the green glow of thousands of glow-worms! These stunning displays of bioluminescence are best seen during the warmer, wetter months of the year, from December to March. You can read all about the glow-worms of Natural Bridge at nprsr. Plus visit Where to Find Glow-worms on the Gold Coast for full details of this really amazing attraction that all kids will love.

Then follow the path up to view the waterfall from above as it plunges into the circular hole and into the cave below. Along the track you can learn all about the amazing special features of the natural surroundings from interpretive s. You can see giant rainforest trees, ferns and fig trees. The walk then le back to the car park. In total, walking with kids and allowing plenty of time to explore the cave, you can expect to take around an hour. Reward yourselves after this great walk with a picnic at the picnic area, where there are picnic tables, one of which has a shelter.

There is often also a food and drink truck near the entrance to the track. There are public toilets. The water here is not suitable for drinking. If the picnic area at Natural Bridge is crowded, you can head to picnic sites at Forest Park in the Numinbah section and Bochow Park, a few kilometres to the north. These sites are great for a picnic or barbecue, and both have a creek that kids will enjoy under adult supervision. Plus check out this Visitors Map from explorespringbrook.
