Wandering Mount Tamborine.....adventures to find....
Every September, there is, on Mount Tamborine a Scarecrow festival. The first year that the frogs visited we missed it by one week and could not return the next week. So this year amongst all the Covid mess we actually had the privilege to visit during this time. If you are keen, the visitor information center has maps of where all the scarecrows are and you can drive and see them all. There are plenty along the Gallery walk too.
So what else is there to see? I hear you ask. There are a number of activities to do. On our first visit we found a lovely Bed and Breakfast that supplied you with breakfast to your room. It was a lovely place on the top of a hill with views, a fire place in the room for those romantics amongst us, hmmm. There are plenty of places to eat, we visited St Bernards Hotel and they do awesome meals. Don't forget to take your appetite with you, cause you will want to enjoy every bite. Along the Gallery walk there are plenty of food places to choose from and don't forget the fudge shops (some of the fudges have alcohol for the adventurous adults) and ice cream parlours. Just to tempt your sweet tooth. We will let you decide on what to eat. We have tried a couple of different places.

Thunderbird park is fun for all the family. We enjoyed mini golf, there are 3 different levels to play here with each one being a different colour for how expert you are at golf. Or you can just play any one and have fun. Horse riding, thunder bird eggs, dinosaurs, see bird feeding, obstacle courses for many different ages, a zip line, creeks and ponds to sit by and just relax. Take your pick, there is also camping areas and cabins for those who wish to stay and relax or be close to the fun and adventures.
No matter what your age group or fitness level there is something on Mount Tamborine for everyone. Many places are wheel chair friendly, though we would recommend that you ring first and make sure or visit the website. If you have a specific place that you wish to visit ring them directly and they will be able to help you. Either way the mountain is a fabulous place to visit for everyone.
