I recently moved to the gold coast from Toronto Canada. I moved here to because of the warm weather beaches and lifestyle. Coming from Canada I'm used to mountains and I was so happy when I found out that I can have both. What a life. Surf in the morning drive half and hour to this. What more can I ask for?

What an exciting way to get back to nature! So beautiful and there's lots of signs for little bits of information and some warnings. Wouldn't recommend for children who are under the age of 3 unless you can keep constant vigilance (cause ya know, cliffs) but I cannot recommend coming here enough! A wonderful hike leading to many waterfalls😍

Took my little boy on a glowworm tour here. Takes a few hours travel on the tour bus but very worth it. The group I went with had six of us and was very nice with the light rain. The glowworms themselves are set primarily in a cave and very Intricate and spellbinding with their maze of webs. The colours of the worms tails is a once in a lifetime event for us...there's only two places in Australia we can see these and must be done with an accredited tourguide..we loved the paths many trees the cave the waterfalls ..all the bugs spiders and ever green tree frogs were very awesome. Slept well from the exposure to the fresh air too.

This is a beautiful national park, wonderful views, great walking tracks. Today it was pouring rain (wonderful to see after drought and fires have ravaged the land) and so the "Best of All" lookout had a somewhat limited view. But then, of course, I realised the rain is the best of all possible views!

Really serene and has less people around to wall with you. Have free parking area near the hiking tracks and they are all connected in a loop. Try the twins fall and canyon lookout trail. Also go for the natural bridge where the glowworm are... really fantastic hiking trails. Gets a little chilly in the morning...
