Natural Bridge circuit

A sealed circuit track takes you through the forest, across Cave Creek and into the arched cave to witness the waterfall plunging from above. At night the cave is illuminated by thousands of glow-worms' tiny green lights. While glow-worms are visible year-round, their display is significantly reduced during the winter months. Interpretive signs along the circuit highlight the park's special features. The hoop pines (Araucaria cunninghamii) that emerge through the thick greenery of the surrounding rainforest are living relics of the Jurassic Age-the age of the conifers-about 180 million years ago. These pines are 'living dinosaurs', they are among the most primitive of conifers.
