Stopped by en route to Gold Coast on a recent road trip down the NSW pacific coast towards Brisbane and the minute I walked into this place, I felt like I was in the animated movie, 'Fern Gully', which I watched when I was young child. The air is fresh and if you are sharp-eyed, you will be able to... More

Still a magical place, even with all the fences and warning signs. Good to visit day or at night to see the glow worms.

If you are in the area, then I highly recommend this walk to the Natural Bridge. We visited mid week so there wasn't a lot of people. The circuit walk is one kilometre on a sealed path, with some steps, and takes around one hour to complete depending on how much time you stop to take photos. You can do... More

The Hoop Pines and water course make for an interesting visit. Useful information at the start of the trail. Natural Bridge makes a beautiful picture. The glow worm cave is okay, but you can experience much better on O'Reilley's plateau. Great for an hours stroll. Well laid out accessible walking track, which makes this natural feature accessible for most reasonably... More

A short round walk takes you through hinterland rainforest to the natural bridge. A few stairs so not good for prams or wheelchairs. The area is fenced off to protect the glow worms and bats. Very beautiful and worth the short walk. About 1km round walk.

What a great view with the noise of the waterfall. In the cave you can even find glow worms. The walk through the rainforest is interesting and easy

WOW what an amazing day. The views were spectacular. This tour was such an amazing experience and I would highly recommend for something different on the Gold Coast. Ross was an amazing tour guide, friendly, knowledgeable and great to spend time with. There was some walking but not too difficult and probably suitable for all ages. Afternoon tea was nice....

A lovely, easy walking circuit. The track is sheltered from the sun - although probably think about mozzie repellent. The sound of the crashing water is pure magic! just thinking about how the bride itself formed... realising that you are in a prehistoric part of the Earth... it is an awe-inspiring, humbling experience. For the length of the drive, you... More

This is a nice hike (circut) though it could be difficult for people not able to make the climb up and down. The forest, cave and waterfall are beautiful. It can be very crowded and unfortuately some people ignore the signs about climbin over the rails so you may want to consider the timing of your visit. Worth the trip.

This walk took me less than an hour and you get some great views. The sign posting could be a bit better but the view of the falls and "the bridge" is worth it. Not great if you have really bad knees. I would rate this as a moderate walk and would recommend the experience.
