I can grab you from most central gold coast accommodation including Surfers Paradise & Main Beach in my shuttle bus, then head to some of the most beautiful local spots. Starting at the Springbrook hinterland sharing highlights such as hiking out to see 2000 year old Antarctic Beech trees while sharing stories and spotting wildlife that you may usually not be able to find without the help of a local. From here, we will show you some of the hidden gems such as waterfalls that's rarely discovered by tourists. We encourage you to bring along your camera to take some beautiful photos of the famous spot in the Gold Coast hinterland known as the 'Natural Bridge' which is a cave that has a waterfall going straight through the middle. We will take you to a local cafe where lunch is also included. You'll need to make sure you're wearing suitable clothes for out-door hiking such as closed-in shoes and sunscreen. Once the tour is complete we will then jump back in the bus where you will return back to your accommodation safely.
Growing up in a family operating guided tours of the Gold Coast and Brisbane for over 30 years, my free hours as a child were spent exploring local rain forests and searching for wildlife. My younger years started me well for operating my own tours of Springbrook. As a member of Wildcare Australia I have cared for injured animals for 15yrs. I have botanical training giving me a unique understanding of the forest, waterfalls and its inhabitants by studying these delicate ecosystems with Qld National Parks in parks such as Springbrook National Park. Living on the Gold Coast all my life with extensive knowledge of our stunning secret hidden rainforests and it's inhabitants is invaluable and unique to my specialised tours. My strong knowledge and passion for sharing my love of the natural environment wolrldwide has bought smiles to many.
We will take you to a local cafe at Springbrook who will provide a meal. (They can cater around any dietry requirements)
We will be taking you through spots as part of the Gold Coast Hinterland such as Natural Arch, Purlingbrook Falls, Rainbow Falls, Goomalarah Falls and the Tweed Shield Volcano caldera at the 'Best Of All Lookout'.
