Springbrook National Park

About Springbrook National Park

Springbrook National Park, located in the Gold Coast hinterland of Queensland, Australia and declared a UNESCO World Heritage site as part of The Gondwana Rainforests initiative, is home to an abundance of protected natural beauty. Spanning 6197 hectares over sprawling McPherson Ranges on the outskirts of Brisbane city – just 100 kilometres south – this incredible destination lies within one of only three surviving sites from Ancient Earth’s supercontinent that now serve as breathtaking reminders for generations to come.

In 2007 the areas of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia were added to the Australian National Heritage List. The park is part of the Scenic Rim Important Bird Area, identified as such by BirdLife International because of its importance in conserving several species of threatened birds. In 2009 as part of the Q150 celebrations, the Springbrook National Park was announced as one of the Q150 Icons of Queensland for its role as a “Natural attraction”.


What to do at Springbrook National Park

Nestled within the Gold Coast hinterland, Springbrook National Park is a natural marvel that must be experienced to appreciate its beauty truly. This World Heritage-listed park holds immense ecological significance, boasting spectacular waterfalls and ancient rainforest and unparalleled views of the surrounding terrain. It provides an unforgettable experience for all visitors. The Gondwana Rainforests of Australia are five properties recognised in the World Heritage Family – one being Springbook’s awe-inspiring scenery!

Springbrook Plateau boasts an amazing array of plant life due to its high rainfall and mix of volcanic soils. Unique examples include the subtropical rainforest with black and white booyong Argyrodendron spp., warm temperate rainforest dominated by coachwood, giant brush box eastwards on the plateau, flooded gums in basalt regions and a cool temperate forest at Best Of All Lookout just across New South Wales’ border containing ancient Antarctic beech trees up to 3,000 years old.
