The Springbrook National Park is a protected national park that is located in the Gold Coast hinterland of Queensland, Australia. The 6,197-hectare (15,310-acre) park is situated on the McPherson Range, near Springbrook, approximately 100 kilometres (62 mi) south of Brisbane. The park is part of the Shield Volcano Group of the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Gondwana Rainforests of Australia.

In December 1994, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee officially extended the area now known as the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area over the Scenic Rim (including Main Range, Mount Barney, Lamington, and Springbrook National Parks, and Goomburra Forest Reserve) and the rainforests of northern New South Wales. 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 the conservation of 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".

  • Twin falls was gorgeous! I went on the shorter route. Quite a nice walk to go on during cool weather. The walk was quite narrow and isn’t fully paved. Be sure to bring good shoes for walking. Plenty of nice lookouts along the path back. Along the way we saw a snake cross the hiking path. So be careful where you step! The toilets just at the entrance of the trail were pretty clean too :).
  • We’ve been here many times we can’t even count ‘em. The beauty never fails to amaze us each time and makes us wants to come back over and over again. We tried coming after a week of non stop rain and the falls is just beautiful. The trail is a bit scary after the rain as it’s slippery and muddy, make sure you gear up. We were caught by the rain in the middle but it was a great experience surrounded by nature.
