Purling Brook Falls in Springbrook by 

Photographed with a Canon 400D.

The beautiful Purling Brook Falls in the Springbrook National Park just west of the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia.

A 4 km track takes you to the bottom of the falls for great views up the cliff & you can walk under the falls if you don’t mind getting a bit wet.
You can see the walking track at the bottom left of this image.

The day started out a little cloudy but quickly turned sunny so I didn’t manage to get any good shots from down the bottom but it was a beautiful walk nonetheless.

The colour (top middle) is people on the viewing platform.

200 views as of Mar 25, 2012.

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.

    Great shot Michael. When was it taken. last year the track was closed because of a landslide.

  • Thanks John. This was taken on Jan 8, 2012. It was after a short dry spell but the colours really make it special. I didn’t notice any recent landslides.

    VERTIGO … your composition really gives one an excellent sense of the whole 100m height of these falls … great work !

  • Only 100 metres ! I didn’t do the research on the height.
    Thanks Trish.
