Take it Easy – One Easy Walk
Sometimes simply ‘breathing in’ a new environment by taking it all in your stride is the best way. One Easy Walk allows you to experience a little bit of everything that Tamborine Mountain has to offer.
Encapsulating ‘must-see’ historical sites like Palm Grove National Park, along with some ‘must-do’ gift, art and sweetie shop stopovers at legendary Gallery Walk, not to mention the Heritage Centre on Wongawallen Road and plenty of characterful restaurants, cafes and beer tasting breweries in-between, this self-guided walk is sure to satisfy.
Take an Hour – Walk to a Waterfall
This exuberant self-guided 60-90-minute walk, (that is suitable for all fitness levels) allows you to fully appreciate the picturesque wonders of Tamborine Mountain’s Joalah National Park, before arriving to observe the splendour that is Curtis Falls.
The interactive map encourages you to stop and observe 20 carefully posted sites that provide intriguing detail to the surrounding flora and fauna along the way. It’s a ‘must do’ for any nature enthusiast or budding (or bonafide) horticulturalist.
Take a Harvest Trail – Explore Farm Gate Produce
Get down to earth with this harvest trail where you’ll be able to fully appreciate the organic freshness of Tamborine Mountain’s finest farm gate produce. We’ve selected nine of our favourite Farm Gates Stalls, dotted around within walking distance of Witches Falls Cottages. Whether it’s fruit and vegetables, flowers, or herbs and spices…there’s an abundance of choice on offer.
Start off at the Small Avocado Stall on MacDonnell Road and slowly work your way down to pick up everything from rhubarb (in season between May-December), tomatoes, fresh flowers (including the best selection of dahlia on the mountain!) to an abundance of other organic fruit and veg from our friendly, oh so knowledgeable farmers. They’ll be only too happy to share some of their pride and passion with you. So, take the Harvest Trail to taste the difference.
Take on some Talent – Experience the Creative Hub
Equally passionate is our local hub of artistic talents, who have let Tamborine Mountain inspire them to create some truly astounding works of art. They are also more than happy to share their creative knowledge through regularly run workshops, (or more personalised classes).
Whether it’s Artful De-stress colouring-in sessions with a local artist, getting your hands gooey with some creative ceramics, having a go with life drawing, rug-making textiles, or an array of other creative workshops, the mind-nurturing opportunities are open to one and all. Take the talent trail to inspire yourself!
