Full description
The Goondawanna Rainforests have so much to offer and only a short drive from the Gold Coast beaches. This small group tour offers a truly personalized experience with no more than 16 people per tour and door- to-door service from your central Gold Coast hotel. Visit the stunning Natural Arch waterfall with a fully-guided walk from an expert local guide.  Learn about the unique flora and fauna of the rain forest as you make your way.  From inside the cave see the water cascading through the roof of the basalt cave formed over millions of years. 

Continuing the tour, "Best of All Lookout" offers a view of northern New South Wales and Mount Warning.  The walk to this magnificent lookout takes you through one of the few remaining pockets of the ancient Antarctic Beech forest. A cosy hinterland restaurant will provide freshly baked scones with jam and cream, accompanied by a coffee, tea or hot chocolate for afternoon tea. Then head off to the nearby viewing platform to see the enchanting Purling Brook Falls. 

During the journey, tour commentary on the area and wildlife is provided along with great scenery of the Numinbah Valley. Take in the views of Twin Falls and Rainbow Falls from Canyon Lookout on the way
home. On the return journey to the Gold Coast, sightings of kangaroos and the pretty faced wallabies is common, as they emerge from their bush retreats to feed on the lush grass in the cooler part of the day.

The experience was great but we went at a time when there has not been much rain so it a bit was disappointing to see the waterfalls trickling just a fee drops of water. I Recommend you go there at the end of summer when there has been rains for you to enjoy the experience.

Was such a nice trip, being able to get out of the city and see the real Gold Coast and with such an amazing, down to earth, funny guide, the day was just perfect!

A nice tour with a very good driver / guide who talked about and told very interesting about the Gold Coast as well as wildlife and plants and the like. He was very educational and very nice. However, it was a small hot ride considering that it is a bit to drive so it will not be long stops at all but more quickly look out and then drive on.
