A captivating waterfall that falls through a hole with a glow worm cave underneath.
Tucked away behind the Gold Coast is Springbrook National Park it shares the border with New South Wales an easy drive for those that live in the northern rivers but also around Nerang in Queensland.
This is a tried and tested kid-friendly walk that the whole family can enjoy. With its paved paths and very few steps to navigate throughout the one kilometer walk its the perfect morning adventure.
Even though we live in the rainforest we still love visiting national parks that boast large towering trees and mossy undergrowth. You will find a mixture of tall Hoop pines with other natives while at ground level large vines create obstacles and things to wiggle while walking past.
You can feel the power of the waterfall as you enter the cave underneath the water pelting down with a ferocious roar. It’s somewhat surreal to witness a hole in a cave with water gushing out.
The cave at night is said to home a large population of glow worms but as we have then in our driveway it’s not an adventure to see them. However, the magic they have when they twinkle at night will leave anyone young or old believe in a little magic.
If you are traveling with kids, there is a little rest area further up the road (200m max) on the left-hand side, it’s very tucked away but it’s great for a picnic spot to refuel before getting back on the road.
