This park at the top of the Springbrook range is the access point for many of the amazing walks in the Springbook area.
The park itself is a lovely little park, with a brand new amenities building, bbq’s and picnic tables. If the kids are used to the foreshore parks alone, pack the car and head up the Springbrook range for this treat. A quiet, sheltered, green green park awaits!
Most days birds such as kookaburras can be found within metres of the visitors, resting on the arms of the trees. Just stop and listen to the wildlife and the leaves flapping in the breeze!
Apple Tree Park is the starting point for the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk. The walk is a 54 kilometre trek through the beautiful Springbrook rainforest. However, you can do a much smaller distance and still take in the great views and tranquility of the rainforest. Pack your walking shoes, a hat and drink bottle and enjoy!
See the birds, hear them chirping, amaze at the beautiful historic trees – this spectacular location is just 29 kilometres from Mudgeeraba.
Apple Tree Park is on the Springbrook plateau within the Springbrook Conservation Area. This conservation area has spectacular views across the Numinbah Valley dissected by Waterfall Creek and Nerang River further west. This site marks one of the entry points into the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk – a project between Queensland Parks and Wildlife and Gold Coast City Council. It aims to provide the community with a connection between Springbrook National Park and Lamington National Park, with Numinbah and Springbrook Conservation Areas forming a link between these two world heritage-listed parks.
