This was a beautiful insight into the Hinterland. Trent was the driver / guide who was very informative, friendly, and expert on the road. We did 3 short walks to beautiful lookouts and Natural Bridge, which was really spectacular. Plenty of time to admire the natural beauty of the area & take photos. Southern Cross even provided a covid-safe afternoon tea; soft drink & choice of sweet or savoury snack.

My wife and I did this tour on Thursday 22nd, our driver was Trent. We both enjoyed this tour immensely and Trent as a tour guide was very knowledgeable (having grown up in the area ) . We had been to Springbrook before but had never seen the wonderful waterfalls and the Natural Bridge. This tour has the lot and would highly recommend to anyone wanting a half day tour .

Of course spotting the Glow Worms was the highlight but seeing the waterfall under moonlight and walking through a rainforest by torchlight was a close second. Although the moonlight affected the main glow worm viewing, our guide was able to take us further along to find a lovely colony. The coffee and cake was delicious and the restaurant was very interesting and welcoming. Pickup was punctual and reliable on both Southern Cross tours that we did during our stay on the Gold Coast.
