With your fun and knowledgeable local guide, enjoy a day of easy bushwalking.
Join Bushwacker Eco Tours and explore the rainforests of Australian
World Heritage area. This tour takes in both the rainforests of
Springbrook and Tamborine National Park.
Start your tour with Natural Arch - true miracle of nature, a cave and waterfall set in a World Heritage listed rainforest.
Visit the purpose-built cave, complete with very realistic formations
such as stalagmites and stalactites.
During the tour, a highly qualified guide will lead you on a short walk
through the rainforest into the cave, where you'll be shown a brief
documentary on the Glow Worms.
After the film, your guide will lead you into the cave filled with
thousands of shining Glow Worms, and give everyone the chance to see a
Glow Worm up close.
The cave is easy to access and doesn't require any bending down or
crawling through tight spaces.
Enjoy an enchanting walk through wet eucalypt forest beneath towering flooded gums and into cool and lush rainforest.
Look for the beautiful crows nest and staghorn ferns in the canopy, and stop to marvel at the intricate strangler fig.
The first view of Curtis Falls will take your breath away.
Depending on the season, a raging torrent or gentle curtain of water
tumbles over huge basalt columns to the pool below.
The columns are the legacy of the region's rich volcanic history.
Look for basking turtles on fallen logs and see fish and eels in
the rock pool. If you’re lucky you might see the local platypus.
