The area first attracted European settlers to its rich timber resources in the early 1900s. Tourism developed at a rapid pace from the 1920s, and it is still a thriving and popular place today. There are a number of heritage sites so history lovers can still get their fill.Things to do
Springbrook National Park is home to the towering Springbrook Mountain. Great for climbing and hiking, you can see an abundance of native flora and fauna as well as enjoying some truly magical views. Mount Warning is another top spot. It is the remains of a volcano. Steeped in Aboriginal legends, Mount Cougal ’s twin peaks are also very popular. As the name suggests, one of the best places to enjoy the views is the Best of All Lookout. There are loads of forest trails, and the area is well-known for its cascading waterfalls and craggy cliffs. Visit the stunning Natural Bridge and see how Mother Nature can create some beautiful structures. Step into the glow worm filled cave and paddle in the babbling creek. Pack a picnic for your days out and dine al fresco in some of the country’s most scenic places.Shopping and dining
