This secret spot isn’t actually that far away at all

SPRINGBROOK NATIONAL PARK

TAKE US TO THIS CAVE POOL NOW.

It looks like something out of a fairytale, huh? You can probably just picture a Disney princess singing the movie’s theme song at the edge of the water joined by a flock of doves and group of bunnies.

But we kid you not, this place exists in real life. In fact, it’s only a day trip away on the Gold Coast. The breathtaking geological featured created by water pushing through the roof of an erosive basalt cave is called the Natural Bridge and is located in Springbrook National Park.

Take a look again this beauty.

NATURAL BRIDGE

The area is easily accessible from Nerang-Murwillumbah Road car park, an hour and a half drive from Brisbane. The walk is a short 1.5kms through ancient rainforest. During the day, the spot is filled with exotic wildlife including riflebirds, wompoo fruit-doves, tree frogs, and koala. And at night, the glow worms and microbats take over.

Shh, now don't spoil the secret. And here's another look, because honestly, how good?
