Springbrook

Just north of the Gold Coast, and just south of Brisbane. springbrook is one of my favorite places to go of a night time.
firstly there is the homestead which serves the best home made food!
then the observatory where i get to learn heaps about the stars... and springbrook is the best place nearby to see the stars, they arent hidden by the city lights.
then there's the glow worms !!!!!
such amusing little creatures.
also i love chatting to the locals, they are all very friendly characters, and sometimes hearing a story or two about the yowie!!!!!

Natural arch.

springbrook also has a beautiful rainforrest, which supports great waterfalls!
one in particular is called Natural arch, its amazing to walk underneath, its like a cave with a waterfall comming down the middle.
Natural arch also has glow worms at night.

you will find all sorts of interesting things in the rainforrests here,
there are artic beech trees which have really huge roots, and strangler fig
vines, which get deopsited in the top of the tree with a little help from a bird,
the fig then grows down the tree taking its nutrience from the tree and slowley developing the
whole tree. once it has reached the ground, it slowley strangles the tree and kills is,
eventually your left with just the fig growing out of the ground, hollow all the way to the top.
(great fun to climb up the middle) hehee .
the picture i have is of a young one, making its way down the tree
