In Short Breaks by The H4C Team

Springbrook Lyrebird Retreat, a AAA 4-star rated resort is the perfect short break for couples as each cabin and cottage provides privacy and seclusion deep in the rainforest. 

Springbrook Plateau, only 40 minutes from the Gold Coast and 90 minutes from Brisbane, is renowned for the iconic Springbrook National Park, part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. With its grand waterfalls, canyon vistas and many fascinating walking tracks through cathedral forests, it is like a window into another world, a living museum of endless discovery. 

You will be delighted by the richness of plants and bird life, butterflies, colourful fungi, as well as the pademelons, bandicoots, possums and the many small marsupials that share this forest with you. Treat yourselves to a delicious café meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner or indulge in special treats from the famous “Fudge Shop.” Relax in the evenings by a cosy fire, unwind in a luxurious double spa or just soak in the special sounds of rainforest nightlife on clear starry nights. Couples can do as much or as little as they want meaning either way, you’re bound to enjoy yourselves.
