Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens, Tamborine Mountain

Set some time aside for a picnic at Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens, nestled in a valley covered by over 11 hectares (27 acres) of mixed subtropical and temperate exotic plants. This park is home to plant species from around the world and includes large seasonal displays of camellias, magnolias, gardenias, azaleas, and rhododendrons. A huge rose garden is also situated inside the park, along with a large collection of perennials, bromeliads, clivias, and hydrangeas. Take a walk through the park’s Japanese garden, designed to include a variety of pruned shrubs, a small pond, and a bridge. As you walk, rest at one of ten contemplative sites, spread around the gardens to allow visitors a chance to rest in a variety of calm natural settings.

    Had a wonderful time. Went to the Glow worm caves and Rob our tour guide was so very informative. Tamborine Botanical Gardens was a great place for a picnic and beautiful walks. Will definitely be going back to explore more

    Lovely walk around. Toilets. Gold coin donation optional. Some steep sections of path but wheel chair accessible everywhere. Minimal parking spots (maybe 30 or so). Cars park everywhere up the roads and adjacent streets. Bring your own food.

    Really lovely location. Didn't even realise it existed until recently despite being a regular visitor to the area. Nice place for a picnic or somewhere peaceful to hang out for a day or a few hours. Clean facilities, tranquil. Limited parking though.

    We take our Grandchildren there regularly and as the seasons change, so does the scenery. To think it is all done by volunteers., To the volunteers, well done, we love the whole experience, especially the new owl walk.
