Hard track
Starting from the dirt road off Springbrook Road, Springbrook, this return walk takes you to the Warringa Pool and waterfall via the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk Track. Enjoy the cool waters of Little Nerang Creek as you take in the scenery around you. The lush rainforest setting can make for great photos combined with the waterfall. You’ll pass by multiple swimming holes before you make it to the big ol’ Warringa Pool. Keep an eye out for interesting fungi and little cairns here and there as you make your way through the lively woodland. If you liked the water tank art, check the website provided to learn more about the other 2 sites. Beware of snakes, especially in warmer months. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
