Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk is owned and operated by the Moore family. The family spent four years in research and planning and finally in March 2009 a world-class tourist attraction showcasing the natural beauty of the rainforest reached fruition.
The rainforest walk departs directly from the centre’s Eco Gallery. On the walk see photos of local flora & fauna, interpretive panels, butterfly displays, insect dioramas and a fresh-water aquarium. Also descriptions of the evolution of Tamborine Mt and local Aboriginal culture.
From the delicate ferns and dense vegetation of the rainforest floor alongside majestic strangler figs and ancient trees to rare orchids and the spectacular panorama in the higher canopies-see it all while crossing the 300 meter, steel-structured bridge and the breath-taking 40 meter long “Skywalk Cantilever” soaring 35 metres above the forest floor, the highest canopies are revealed and add an element of excitement and a rare opportunity to be actually up in the highest parts of the forest. The total walk takes about 50 minutes although a dedicated nature lover may take a whole lot longer.
Purchase light refreshments and snacks from the Skywalk’s Birdwing Coffee Shop, or some beautiful gifts and souvenirs from the centre’s gift shop.
