Palm Grove Circuit (F6) from Curtis Road (2.5km return, allow 1 hour, easy grade)

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).

A huge fallen strangler fig blocking the path has been partly cut allowing walkers to pass safely. At the “T” junction to the “Palm Grove Circuit” track allow time to admire a gigantic leaning strangler fig on the left.

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.

Tamborine Ntional Park, Picnic Area, Kids day out

Cedar Creek Picnic Area

There are two distinctly separate picnic areas. The first one is closer to the car park and offers plenty of room and facilities. There are large flat grassed areas ideal for throwing a ball, with many tree sheltered picnic settings spread out along the edges. An ideal family area away from any traffic noise or similar suburban influences.

The closeness to the only swimming hole on Tamborine Mountain “Cedar Creek Falls” makes this picnic area the ideal summer destination. Three waterfalls are just 10 minutes walk away, inviting the visitor to cool down from the summer’s heat. The waterfalls are spectacular all year round, the gorge scenery breathtaking.

Cedar Creek Falls, Picnic Tamborine

Car Parking at “Cedar Creek Falls” is limited

The second area is reached after approximately two hundred meters walk on a sealed path, just to the right of the beginning of the board walk that leads to the falls. This area was once used as a school and group campground, and therefore provides a safe and secluded setting for your next picnic, close to nature and with all facilities you could wish for!

Please note that at peak periods you will find it difficult to find a car parking spot close to Cedar Creek Falls and the Picnic Areas. To keep the impact on local wildlife (as well as the residents!) to a minimum, car parking spaces have been limited. The access road has yellow line marking on both sides, meaning that parking on the access road is NOT permitted, as the road is simply too narrow. Additional car parking is available at the start of the road, at the turn off to Thunderbird Park. From there a leisurely 20 minute stroll will get you to the first picnic area.

Breweries / Distillery / Wineries

One of the main reasons why close to 1 Million people visit Tamborine Mountain every year is the fact that the Mountain boasts 7 wineries offering a huge variety of wines – whites, reds, sparkling, fortified and everything in between. Add to that some phantastic beers from the “Fortitude Brewery” located at the lower roundabout of Gallery Walk or liqeuers from “Castle Glen Australia” – and a unique and exciting tasting experience awaits you on Tamborine Mountain!

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
