Thanks to the eruption of an ancient volcano 23 million years ago, Springbrook is home to a multitude of things that grow, gurgle and glow. Spectacular waterfalls and lookouts abound as The Natural Bridge cave twinkles with resident glow worms. The wilderness is marked by strangler figs, rare birds and glow-in-the-dark mushrooms. A sub-tropical paradise, Springbrook is home to Land Mullets, Pademelons, Lace Monitors (those prehistoric-looking giant lizards), Bandicoots and Sugar Gliders. Dotted with quaint guesthouses and cafés nestled into the glorious rainforest, The town backs on to the National Park and has walking-track access to the single-drop 106m Purling Brook Falls. A final astronomical thing about Springbrook is its observatory! POP 624
