Natural Bridge, Springbrook National Park – the Scenic Rim, Queensland.

This post is of the spectacular ‘Natural Bridge’ feature within Springbrook National Park – itself within the fabulous Scenic Rim region of Queensland. It requires a short and gentle scenic hike that is well worth taking.

At the beginning of the trail there is a junction: turn left and walk the circuit in a clockwise direction for the easiest hike (take steps down rather than ascend). Here is the junction point showing the “left” option…

Great Southern Region – Australia’s South West

The Great Southern Region of Western Australia’s South West contains rolling pastoral landscapes, mountain ranges, rivers and streams, and forested cliffs abutting the seemingly relentless Southern Ocean. There are also delightful cosy coves, tranquil inlets, and calm bays – it is primarily a few portions of the stunning coast that I share in this photo-blog.

 

Aptly named “Elephant Rocks.”
