Natural Arch

On Monday we went to Natural Arch which is in Springbrook national park and it is World heritage listed.  I didn't really now what to expect, but the sight I was going to see was going to be breath-taking. It was an hour and half car ride with some beautiful scenery to see, we packed all the food we could and set on our way!

On the way we stopped at, the Canungra town or the main street. It was a nice little town. Some of the mountain scenery was simply spectacular though it was a little to windy on the way up.

So Natural Arch is an arch that had been made from water from a waterfall that has broken down and all the rock minerals. My dad was saying that when we was a little boy the arch wasn't as big and some of the other little rock pools there hadn't even formed when he went just goes to show you. If we went during the night we would have been able to see glow worms in the cave at which the natural arch is. And what makes it even more amazing to look at is the dead tree that stands in the middle of it....I know it sounds a little weird but once you look at a picture you will now what I mean. I will post some pictures that I took along the way.

It was an 1km circuit to walk and as soon as we stepped foot about 10m from the Arch the temperature dropped heaps! I don't now about other people but I love the smell of rain, and the smell of the waterfall to me was well worth the windy road. The sound of the waterfall was like the sound you hear on the classical you tube videos it was music to my ears! The rainforest that surrounded us was also beautiful, it was so lush and green.

The scenery....sorry it is blurry as we were in the car


The waterfall that has formed the arch

The Natural Arch! It is breath-taking

This is meant to look like a snail that has it's mouth open.


My dad saw this shape and said that it looked like a person up-side down with its arms in the air!

So that was my day at Natural Arch


  1. Haha! It does look like a person upside down, and I can see the snail. I think it is neat to see stuff like nature

  2. That is so cool! I haven't been reading blogs like I usually do as I've been gone all summer, and I was so happy to see your new posts!! :)


Thank you so much for your comment, it really makes my day ♥♥
