Mount Tambourine Queensland

Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk located on Tamborine Mountain is an innovative way to view this spectacular environment. Visitors depart from the Eco Info Gallery, which offers comprehensive local flora and fauna interpretive panels & displays and a fresh water aquarium, to begin an adventure on a spectacular elevated walkway, high above the ground in the beautiful rainforest canopy.

Descending gradually to the densely vegetated rainforest floor beside the creek, the walk follows points of interest including rockpools, a butterfly lookout, local history enclosure and sheltered rest areas along the way until reaching the amazing Cantilever.

Visitors return to the Centre which has a cafe serving light refreshments, gift shop with quality merchandise, toilet facilities (including accessible facilities), and bus/car parking areas. The walk takes approximately 50 minutes and is suitable for all ages.

The Skywalk is open 7 days from 9:30am with final walks at 4pm (closing at 5pm) and entry prices are Adults $19.50, Children $9.50, Family $44.00 (2 adults & 1 children), Extra Child $5.00 and Senior/Student Card Holders $16.50.

The start of the tree walk..over the sway bridge, then along a track to the creek and back again.

Beautiful palms..this is the chandelier palm which inspired the crystal lights at Government House.

The walk departs directly from the Eco Gallery with a comprehensive array of Australian rainforest flora and fauna displays.

The walk takes approximately 45 minutes at a leisurely pace, when pausing to view the many points of interest and information along the way.

The entire walk totals 1.5 kms and is a combination of forest floor trails, 300 metres of high-tech steel bridges through the highest points of the upper canopy, and a 40 metre cantilever bridge that soars a breathtaking 30 metres above the creek and rainforest below.

There is a lot to see and do at Tambourine Mountain.

We had almost a day…after the Sky walk we walked the township and had lunch at a delightful restaurant near the Roundabout.

We did look through the Cuckoo Clocks..a fabulous collection and display of many many clocks
