Immerse yourself in the peaceful and beautiful world of Queensland’s rainforest. The breathtaking Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk is an experience unlike any other, taking you through the treetops and allowing you to witness the rainforest from a unique vantage point.
This exciting eco adventure is set amid a magical 30 acres of privately owned rainforest, beside the crystal clear rock pools of Cedar Creek on Mount Tamborine. The walk takes approximately 45 minutes of leisurely paced strolling, allowing guests to pause at particular places of interest and learn interesting information along the way.
The entire walk measures 1.5 kilometres and consists 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 an impressive 30 metres above the creek bed and rainforest below.
The Skywalk gives its guests the opportunity to meander and enjoy the rainforest at their own leisure, unaccompanied by a guide. Take your time to absorb the peaceful surroundings, soak up the serenity and appreciate nature in all its lush glory. Flat-soled, comfortable walking shoes are advised, and the walk is suitable for larger-wheeled strollers (although bear in mind there are some steps) and has wheelchair access for the first Skywalk bridge.
The Skywalk’s Centre is a hub of activity. It boasts the Eco Gallery, which showcases local rainforest birds, animals and reptiles, as well as information panels of local and Indigenous Australian history. There is a large aquarium with local water life, as well as dioramas of Australian and exotic insects and butterfly collections.
The Birdwing Café provides the opportunity to refuel after exploring the rainforest, offering a decadent array of cakes, tartlets, slices, brownies and cheesecakes. The warm scones are served with local jam and fresh cream, and for a savoury treat there’s the award-winning organic Bryon Bay pies and rolls, famous for their buttery pastry and special fillings.
Stop by the gift shop for a memento of your experience exploring Mount Tamborine’s beautiful rainforest canopies.
