Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk
The Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk is an exciting eco-Adventure that offers guests a unique and thrilling way to explore the beautiful rainforest canopies in Queensland, Australia.
Set in a magical 30 acres of privately owned rainforest beside the crystal clear rock-pools of Cedar Creek on Mt Tamborine, just under an hour’s drive from Surfers Paradise.
The walk starts and finishes at the Eco Gallery where there is a comprehensive array of Australian rainforest flora and fauna displays. Included in the Eco Gallery building is the Birdwing Cafe serving delicious light food, cakes and coffees.
You walk at your own pace, (not accompanied by a guide) that takes approximately 45 minutes at a leisurely pace, allowing time to view the many points of interest and information along the way.
The entire walk totals one and a half kilometres 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.
The Rainforest Eco Gallery showcases local rainforest animals, birds and reptiles. There are dioramas of Australian and exotic insects, butterfly collections and a large aquarium with local water life. There are also information panels of local and indigenous Australian history.
The Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk is at 333 Geissmann Drive, North Tamborine, Queensland.
