Springbrook National Park's John Stacey Suspension Bridge

The John Stacey Suspension Bridge that crosses Little Nerang Creek gorge was opened in February 2015. The bridge was part of an upgrade of the Purling Brook Falls walking track circuit, one of Queensland's most popular national park tracks. A new section of track has replaced a previous section that was subject to landslips.

Walk down to the bridge—about a 90 minute round trip—to enjoy a complete view of the spectacular Purling Brook waterfall.

The bridge name honours the late John Stacey, a Springbrook builder who became a highly respected QPWS ranger known for his craftsmanship on building projects and his other contributions to management of the area’s parks.
