Take a walk through the beautiful botanical gardens at Tamborine Mountain. Peaceful and so beautiful. There are barbecue areas and plenty of shady areas to sit and relax and take in the beauty of the gardens. Certainly worth a visit.

The volunteers who are responsible for the gardens should be very proud of their efforts. The gardens are really well maintained; peaceful and easy to navigate. Gold coin donations help to fund their work. Wonderful place for a quiet picnic.

The gardens are amazing and created and maintained by volunteers to a very high standard. They are located in Forsythia Drive off Long Road, north end, (Long Rd is where Gallery Walk is located). Well worth a visit!
