Chillingham ~ A Natural Village

Located just 15 minutes scenic drive from Murwillumbah on the far North coast of NSW, Chillingham village is the gateway to Springbrook National Park and the rock archway known as Natural Bridge. Behind the Bridge the mountain-fed waters of Cave Creek form a waterfall which plunges through the roof of a cave into a sparkling pool below, which then flows into the Nerang River and down the Numinbah Valley.  At night the forest and caves are alight with the largest glow-worm colony in Australia ~ a must-see for visitors and locals alike.
