Tamborine Mountain was again humming in 2017 with the “Springtime on the Mountain” Festival held from Friday 22nd through to Sunday 24th of September 2017.

Tamborine Mountain’s annual Springtime on the Mountain open gardens festival was the most diverse and spectacular in many years. The festival was voted Community Event of the Year in January 2016 at the Scenic Rim Australia Day Awards.

Another delightful garden
opening to the public in September!

This year Festival organisers have brought together a total of eight private gardens – four for the first time and four great favorites – that are open to the public over three days on the last week in September.
The offerings this year range from quaint and pretty cottage gardens to broad, open expanses with towering trees and delightful pockets of colour.

The beautiful VISTAS Garden

Just a few minutes from the tourist centre of Gallery Walk in Eagle Heights are three treasures; The Haven and Forget-Me-Not Cottage offer the colourful delight of cottage gardens while spectacular Villa Montana evokes Italy.

The largest property among this year’s gardens was Vistas. As its name states, this garden of rolling lawns, forests of trees and multiple garden spaces spreads across nearly a hectare – a wonderful garden in which to rest and, perhaps, take a picnic.

The hub of activities was the Vonda Youngman Community Centre in North Tamborine. The centre was home to a cafe open for lunch, morning and afternoon teas, plant stalls, entertainment and loads of information about gardening from guest speakers.

The line-up of guest speakers included Garden Guru Phil Dudman, radio host and magazine editor Paul Plant and horticulturalist and presenter Claire Bickle.

Tamborine Mountain Garden Club, Botanical Gardens, Springtime on the Mountain Trail passes were just $20 per person, with Government Pensioner card holders at $15, dependent children free. Single garden passes were $5.

Group bookings and coach tours were most welcome, with the price for pre-booked groups of 10 or more at just $15 per person. Complimentary trail guides were included.

All proceeds went towards improving our Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens.
