Natural Bridge

Gold Coast

The scenic Natural Bridge, off the Nerang–Murwillumbah road, has a 1km paved walking circuit leading to a huge rock arch spanning a water-formed cave – home to a luminous colony of glowworms, best seen on summer evenings. Listen out for the uncanny call of the catbird around here.
