The Goondawanna Rainforests have so much to offer and they are only a short drive from the Gold Coast beaches. This small group tour provides a truly personalised experience with no more than 16 people per tour and door to door service from your centrally located Gold Coast hotel.

Visit the stunning Natural Bridge waterfall on a guided walk with your expert local guide and learn about the unique flora and fauna of the rainforest along the way. From inside the cave see the water cascading through the roof of the basalt cave which has been formed over millions of years.

Continue to the Best of All Lookout and take in the stunning views of northern New South Wales and Mount Warning. The walk to this magnificent lookout takes you through one of the few remaining pockets of ancient Antarctic beech forest.

A cosy hinterland restaurant will provide freshly baked scones with jam cream for afternoon tea. Accompanied by a coffee, tea or hot chocolate before heading to the nearby viewing platform to see Purling Brook Falls.

During the journey tour commentary on the area and wildlife is provided along with great scenery of the Numinbah valley. Take in the views of Twin Falls and Rainbow Falls from Canyon Lookout on the way home.
