Overview

Highlights

Springbrook National Park has breathtaking lookouts, magnificent waterfalls, dense rainforest and ancient Antarctic beech trees. The park is part of Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage area. Start the Twin Falls circuit at the Tallanbana picnic area or at the Canyon lookout. Pass behind two waterfalls, through rock clefts and among palms and tree ferns.

Signs along the way guide you through the different forest types. Keep an eye out for the smooth, pink bark of brush box trees that line the track. Similar brush box in other parts of the world heritage area have been radio-carbon dated at 1500 years, making these trees the oldest ever carbon-dated on Australia's mainland! Remember to allow enough time to take in the mountain views and get your fill of photos.

This walk is managed by the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service. The map on their site only shows an indicative start point; the track route and end point are not shown, and the map cannot be used for navigation purposes. See www.des.qld.gov.au for detailed maps and the latest park information. When you are in the park, read the signs at and near the start of the track.

Important Information

Guidelines

  • Always do some research before heading out for your journey. Visit the parks website for up to date information on the current conditions. Ensure to check for any updates relating to any warnings that may be issued for the area, and check for the opening and closing times.
  • Always enjoy waterfalls from trails and marked viewing points. Do not climb over barriers as cliff edges and slippery surfaces may cause injury or death.
  • Only swim where permitted. Don’t jump from cliff edges into water bodies.
  • Swimming near or under waterfalls can be dangerous due to strong currents, submerged hidden rock ledges and other dangers. The force of a waterfall can be incredibly strong and unfortunately, many people have drowned. Follow warning signs and take caution.
  • Wear suitable footwear and ensure to bring a hat and sunscreen to protect yourself from the elements.
  • Plan ahead and ensure to take enough food and water for your journey.
  • Always stay on the marked tracks where possible. Never climb fences, they are there for your own safety.
  • Please consider the environment, take your rubbish with you or place in the bins provided. We want to ensure these beautiful places are still here for our future generations to enjoy.
  • Ensure to let a responsible adult know of your plans and report back into them once you have finished exploring for the day.
  • Leave nothing but footprints. Take nothing but memories.

The best hike for kids and adults!

My girls and I did this hike over 2 hours, it ended up being 9.84km as we did the full circuit instead of turning around at the main falls. Was well worth doing the full loop
