      Great tour
      Saw loads of wildlife including various frogs, bats, spiders, geckos, and even an eel and giant earthworm. Was a great night for the glowworms, saw loads. Tour guide Adam was great and so was the cake!

      Experience feedback- southern cross tours
      Had a great time on the tour. Our tour guide was really friendly and helpful. She gave us a lot of interesting information about the place and extra information about gold Coast which was fun to know. Our tour guide Chriss was really encouraging and enthusiastic about the tour and it motivated us. We encountered various small animals and saw the glow worms during the tour. Over all it was a great experience and I highly recommend it to everyone. Cheers

      Brilliant day out
      Great tour! Pick up location was easy to find, bus is comfortable and air conditioned. Our tour guide Mark was not only very knowledgeable but also clearly passionate about the area. We learned lots of interesting facts about the wildlife and nature. The first stop is a beautiful view, then the walk through the rainforest is very easy and interesting (seeing from the top of the canopy is cool). A big highlight is getting to feed the wild birds! They are so friendly and calm, they will happily eat seeds from you for ages. The vineyard to end the tour is lovely; good food options for gluten free and very reasonably priced wine tasting (one per couple is probably enough as they give you BIG tasters!). All in all very happy with this tour company and would highly recommend this tour in particular as a fun day out.

      Glow worm evening rainforest tour
      Beautiful trip with a fab guide. Alex was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. We managed to see lots of creatures during this evening tour & the glow worms next to the waterfall were just magical!

      Ask for Marc as your guide and you won't be disappointed
      Marc was such a great guide, he's told us so many cool stories about the areas we visited and GC itself but also about the NT where he was raised. It was a very enjoyable day, but if you have a motion sickness, make sure to take your tablets in the morning as the road is a bit windy - I loved it and wished I could drive myself! My suggestion would be to extend the time spend in the winery, we only had time for a meal (loved the pumpkin salad) and we had to go back to GC. I'd like to get an hour to walk around and explore or just chill under the tree, that's my only criticism.

      Great change of pace from typical night life, amazing experience.
      Great change of pace from the typical night life. Amazing experience being surrounded by the sounds of the rainforest and wildlife. The glowworms are really magical. Our guide Alex had great knowledge and insight of the area, and made it feel very safe but still fun. I highly recommend if you're looking for more of a wind down evening that's still fun.

      Beautiful glow worms, waterfall sounds and delicious cake
      This is definitely a tour you should include into your itinerary if you are into nature walks and see no cool bioluminescent wildlife. Daniel was a great guide taking us through the rainforest and providing excellent explanations of the flora and fauna we encountered. Additionally cheesecake I had at The Manor was delicious!

      Interesting and unique experience
      I had a great time on this tour, saw heaps of glow worms and some other critters along the way. Our guide Daniel was excellent - super knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. 10/10 tour guide, although unwilling to eat the glowing mushrooms for some reason…

      Evening rainforest walk
      It’s one of the kind experiences. However, it’s too dark to photograph the glow worms and there are not too much to see. The guide is wonderful.

    The tour guide Andy was very knowledgeable on the features we passed along the way to the Natural Bridge and the various waterfalls and lookouts. Our first stop was the Natural Bridge and we were able to see the waterfall from three vantage points. The other attractions on the tour were the Purling Brook waterfall, the Best Of All lookout where the outline of the Gold Coast could be seen in the distance, the Canyon lookout and the waterfall from the cliff edge. We were also fortunate to see pademelon wallabies, a python seeking the sun to warm itself on the rocks and kangaroos on the golf course.

    There were tourists with varying levels of fitness and Andy was mindful of this when conducting the tour.

    Overall it was a most enjoyable tour and I would highly recommend this for anyone wishing to experience something different when visiting the Gold Coast.

    I did this 5 hour tour with my 80 year old mother-in-law and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. There were only 9 people on our tour and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the area. The rainforest areas we visited were stunning and the waterfalls magnificent due to the recent rains. It was a lovely way to see something more than the coastline that the Gold Coast is renowned for. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who doesn’t have a lot of time and wants to see some beautiful scenery.

    My friend and I did the afternoon Springbrook and Natural bridge tour last Friday. We were picked up on time which was great.
    Trent was our driver and tour guide for the afternoon. Loved him...he sure knew his stuff as he grew up in the area so was very knowledgeable so if you asked him a question then he knew the answer
    Good amount of time for stops and toilet breaks.
    As I am a Travel Agent I am always looking for tours to recommend to my customers so this will definitely be on the list.
    Thanks for an amazing time

    The natural surroundings, rainforest and varied landscapes were a pleasant change from the coastal experience. Bill the tour guide was enthusiastic and had great knowledge especially of botany and landforms. Be prepared for cooler conditions to the coast and for rain if the forecast predicts the possibility. I should have worn more layers as it was already drizzling on the coast before we left. But the wet conditions didn't diminish the various waterfalls especially Natural Bridge.

    We are visiting Australia from the US to see our daughter who’s studying at Griffith University. We wished we could see more of this great and vast country but time didn’t permit . However, going on this tour with our friendly and knowledgeable guide, Bill, exposed us to a bunch of spectacular sights all in one afternoon. It really felt like it increased the scope of our trip by a tremendous amount and we’d recommend this tour to anyone. Such wonderfully inspiring views and such a great perspective of the area beyond the beaches of Surfers Paradise.

    This was a beautiful insight into the Hinterland. Trent was the driver / guide who was very informative, friendly, and expert on the road. We did 3 short walks to beautiful lookouts and Natural Bridge, which was really spectacular. Plenty of time to admire the natural beauty of the area & take photos. Southern Cross even provided a covid-safe afternoon tea; soft drink & choice of sweet or savoury snack.

    Thank God we wrote to them when the slots were all booked, here, for the days we were supposed to be there. They managed to add us on their tour. This half day tour is for those who do not have many days to be able to do everything that Gold Coast has to offer or do not want to spend most of the time at waterfalls (and if you enjoy waterfalls and taking dip, this is not for you)...Of course we belong to former - did not have much time. They take you to all the best spots that shouldn't be missed such as

    Gondwana Rainforests, Springbrook National Park, bushwalk to waterfalls at Natural Bridge and a bird view of Gold Coast from different mountains in contrasting cold weathers compared to heat in Gold Coast (so don't forget to carry your warm pullovers, etc. )

    The guide was generous with sharing his knowledge and also served us interesting knick-knacks as evening snacks.

    We wish they involved a little more walk in their tours, but it's not their mistake...Only our expectations.

    This half day tour is exactly what you want to do when you crave nature, views and some amazing waterfall.

    We went on the springbrook tour with Marc yest 02/08 and it was fantastic. Marc was very energetic and tried to include everyone and also helped us take photos. The tour itself was comprehensive, we felt we got our money's worth and the customer service from the booking service was excellent.

    The hike was awesome!! Needed this so much as I live in a city, where it's hard to go hiking here. It was raining unfortunately on the day of the hike and I was not prepared for the wet weather conditions. The view was blocked off by the clouds as it was raining, so we did not get to see the clear view when we reach our first lookout point, but the tour guide did show us a picture of what it looked like when it is clear.

    Initially I thought it would have been a 5 hour hike continuously, but in fact, it was just a small hike with car rides in between to ferry us to different location.

    Our tour guide Daniel was very knowledgeable and had told us a lot of interesting facts about springbrook and gold coast as a whole. He was also very professional in handling leech bites swiftly. The tour in itself was excellent, as we have travelled through different places with spectacular rainforest and waterfall views from point to point inside springbrook, including the famous natural bridge. We also got sufficient time to take pictures without a rush. Definitely worth it!
