How was Mount Tamborine formed?

Mount Tamborine has a very interesting history that spans back millions of years, it is a remnant of a crater rim of a volcanic explosion that happened about 22 Million years ago. It lends its name to a cluster of three villages that have settled on the mountain ridge over the past years.

The market offers a huge range of fresh fruit and vegetables, wonderful locally produced cheeses, plants, herbs, flowers, coffee, arts and crafts, collectibles, garden ornaments, clothing, a myriad of home made things and delicious temptations of all kinds.

Family friendly markets!

Family friendly markets!

And if all this makes you hungry, there is plenty of food to eat right then, there’s excellent coffee, proffertjes (Dutch pancakes), German sausages (try the “Knackwurst” with mustard – yum!) or be tempted by baked jacket potatoes or fresh corn on the cob.

The Tamborine Mountain Showgrounds are quite large, so there is plenty of room to wander around.

Usually there’s a singer or performer on the gazebo stage, giving these markets a relaxing country atmosphere.  Large shady trees keep you cool in summer, and some open areas allow you to soak in the sun on cooler days.

The race is on!

Little kids can have pony rides or play in the kids’ castle area, or have some fun with the small kid’s car ride.  The “Tamborine Mountain County Markets” are definitely family-friendly, sometimes several dozen prams are seen parked in the eatery area!

For parking, there is some street parking all around “Main Western Road” but if you manage to find a spot, it can be difficult to cross the road and it can also mean a bit of a walk back to your car.

Tamborine Mountain Country Markets

A much better solution is to support the SES or the local Fire Brigade who co-ordinate parking inside the grassy showgrounds.  Just turn into Normandie Court at the roundabout and follow the signs.  Entry is by gold coin donation, and an SES volunteer will direct you to your parking spot.  It is much easier then to drop your fruit, vegies and other goodies back to the car – because chances are -you are going to buy too much to carry around!

The coolness and fresh air of Tamborine Mountain invites you to thoroughly enjoy this country market day.  And whilst you are there, you can also drop in at the “Green Shed Local

Tamborine Mountain “Lions Park” Picnic Area

View on Map “Discover Tamborine Mountain” map reference E5

Offering all necessary picnic facilities, the “Lions Park” has plenty of room for the kids to roam around. Large trees provide shade on hot days and cooking can be done on a number of wood fired BBQ’s.

In early 2012, the Tamborine Mountain “Lions Club” installed two large picnic shelters, providing protection from the elements.

These feature large picnic benches and tables and a solidly built roof structure on a concrete floor.  This addition makes “Lions Park” an even more popular picnic area.  It is easily accessible, but still a little away from the “beaten track”.  The new picnic shelters are located close to “Curtis Road”, with plenty of close by parking.

In December 2018 a large adventure playground was added, making “Lions Park” the ideal family picnic location. The adventure playground will keep the kids entertained for hours, offering endless climbing and playing activities. Raised seating for the “big kids” allows for easy supervision.
