The historic and heritage listed Springbrook Road is a passionate drivers dream come true with fantastic scenic views along this windy road. On the way up to The Mouses House Retreat with an altitude of 850m above sea-level, you will drive over two 1930's prisoner built wooden bridges and a 'hold your breath' one lane only section. The road is very well maintained by Main Roads and is fully sealed to The Mouses House Retreat and beyond.
Springbrook average summer temperatures range is 15°C to 26°C. Winters are mild and sunny with average temperatures ranging from 4°C/45F to 22°C/72F
