Visit Queensland Government – Parks and Forests for the latest updates regarding Springbrook National Park.

Please note: Gold Coast Springbrook Road is closed between Neranwood Park and Pine Creek Road due to extensive damage caused by heavy rainfall and flooding in February–March 2022. Access to the national park is currently via Pine Creek Road only. For more information visit the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads web page, South East Queensland flood reconstruction works.

Apple Tree Park forms part of the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk and is just one of many entry points. The starting point for the walk is the Settlement Campground at Purlingbrook Falls. The walk is a 54-kilometre trek through the beautiful Springbrook rainforest. You can do a much smaller distance if you prefer and still take in the great views and tranquillity of the rainforest.

Pack your walking shoes, a hat and drink bottle and enjoy. See the birds, hear them chirping, be amazed at the beautiful historic trees.

This spectacular location is just 29 kilometres from Mudgeeraba, at the top of the Springbrook range and is the access point for many of the amazing walks in the Springbrook area. The park itself is lovely with a brand new amenities building, barbecues and picnic tables.

Most days, birds such as kookaburras can be found within metres of the visitors, resting on the arms of the trees. Just stop and listen to the wildlife and the leaves flapping in the breeze!
