Tamborine Mountain is a nature lover’s paradise!
The famous “Witches Falls” section of the Tamborine National Park (MtTamborine, Mount Tamborine) was declared in 1908, making it Queensland’s first national park. Over the years additional reserves have been declared and today the park is made up of 13 sections of land on the Tamborine plateau and surrounding foothills.
When you visit Tamborine Mountain, visit the many waterfalls which are easily reached by clearly defined walking trails and bushwalks. Lookouts with breathtaking views invite to stop and gaze into the distance. There are numerous beautiful picnic and BBQ areas, inviting you to enjoy a meal in the Great Outdoors.
And the kids haven’t been forgotten either – Tamborine Mountain offers a large number of kid’s playgrounds so that Mum and Dad can truly relax and also enjoy their day out!
One of the “Frequently Asked Questions” is whether the Tamborine National Park is open all year round, what times during the day and how much the entry fee is. This question is based on the fact that some of Australia’s National Parks close during certain times of the year, are only open during normal daylight hours and indeed often charge an entry fee (which in turn is used for the upkeep of the roads, rubbish removal, conservation and other worthwhile projects). The Tamborine National Park is open all year round, there are no gates, no entry fees – but as always, common sense rules, local regulations need to be observed to ensure that our National Parks can be fully enjoyed by many generations to come!
