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".

Natural bridge is home to glow worms. You can see them glow in the dark.(they are not fire flies). The constantly wet condition in this region is a much suited habitat for them. Its not a long walk to the viewing platform. Spectacular view of the water flowing right into the cave. As you head down, you can see the cave and the natural bridge formation.
An amazing trekking national park providing the perfect mixture of nature, wildlife and stunning views. Depending on your skill set it is worth going with a ranger to get a better appreciation of the sights and sounds. There are a beautiful waterfall and the variation in scenery as you descend deeper is something to behold. A truly marvellous place to visit.
