The villages on Tamborine Mountain are surrounded by National Parks with lush rain forests.

The first section of this bush walk is simply called “Access track”, which highly underrates the breathtaking rainforest scenery that awaits you. The track descends downhill, first gradually zigzagging than straightening out. Walkers will encounter a number of huge trees such as strangler figs, ghost gums and the like, some of these leaning and forming some fascinating buttress root growth formations (44 stairs).

B. Entry from “Palm Grove Avenue” (E6)
Head south on Eagle Heights Road and turn into Palm Grove Avenue when the road veers left, you will reach the end of the road after about 200 meters. Car parking spaces are not clearly marked, but recognizable; there is a turning circle and some picnic facilities at the entrance to the bush walk.
